Thanks, this is more or less what I... just did..
+ result = get_namespace_oid(nsp_name, false);
This is incorrect, you should use strVal(linitial(names)) instead.
+ if (list_length(names) > 1)
+ errmsg("improper qualified name (too many dotted names): %s",
I would just mark that as "Invalid syntax".
A couple of tests in regproc.sql would be a good addition as well.
