I know of several extensions that use CatalogUpdateIndexes() to update their own tables. Citus included (It's trivial to change on our side, so that's not a reason to do or not do something). There really is no convenient API to do so without it. > (I'm a little more concerned by Alvaro's apparent position that WARM > is a done deal; I didn't think so.
