If the function is really OWNED BY EXTENSION, then the right way to

DEPENDS ON EXTENSION for this reason, there's no ambiguity about what

That's the argument that motivates this particular patch. I think if we
have a DEPENDS ON EXTENSION framework, it (a) addresses the immediate
need, and (b) gives us a straightforward way to add DEPENDS ON <x> in
