+1 for the concept, but I'm a bit worried about putting atooid() in
postgres_ext.h. That's going to impose on the namespace of libpq-using
applications, for instance. A more conservative answer would be to
add it to c.h. OTOH, postgres_ext.h is where the Oid typedef lives,
so I do see the consistency of adding this there. Hard choice.
The oid_cmp() move looks fine if we only need it on the server side.
But doesn't pg_dump have one too?
