One thing from the commit-message: "On-disk, we can still store it in words, so as to not break on-disk compatibility with beta1." Hasn't that ship already sailed? from beta1 to HEAD: The database cluster was initialized with CATALOG_VERSION_NO 201605051, but the server was compiled with CATALOG_VERSION_NO 201605191. Or is the concern about intra-version pg_upgrade rather than direct on-disk compatibility?
