+1 for that approach -- I thought that was already agreed weeks ago and
the only question was what to name that option.  even_frozen_pages
sounds better than SCANALL, SCAN_ALL, FREEZE, FORCE (the other
options I saw proposed in that subthread), so +1 for that naming

I don't like doing nothing; that means that when we discover a bug we'll
have to tell users to rm a file whose name requires a complicated
catalog query to find out, so -1 for that.
