Hmm.  I forget what the behavior is if we see an unrecognized reloption
already stored in the catalogs, but it might be worth checking.  If
that's something that's painful to get out of, maybe a catversion bump
would be appropriate.

(In practice this affects nobody, because there was already a catversion
bump since beta1.)
