Yeah, the conservative solution would definitely be to use FATAL.
It's still a usability improvement over what we have now.

In further experimentation, I found out that even with this patch in
place, the plpython transform extensions still present a dump/reload

test=# create extension plpython2u;
test=# create extension ltree_plpython3u cascade;
NOTICE:  installing required extension "ltree"
NOTICE:  installing required extension "plpython3u"
ERROR:  multiple Python libraries are present in session
DETAIL:  Only one Python major version can be used in one session.

AFAICS, the reason for that is this code in the transform extension

-- make sure the prerequisite libraries are loaded
DO '1' LANGUAGE plpython3u;

It does appear that we need something for this, because if you just
remove it you get failures like

Symbol not found: _PLyUnicode_FromStringAndSize

But I wonder why we couldn't make it do

LOAD 'plpython3';

instead.  If I change the script like that, it seems to go through fine
even with both Python libraries loaded, because CREATE TRANSFORM does not
actually call into the language implementation.
