Well, the feature it's replacing (autoload an "unknown" module) had to be
squeezed down to being effectively superuser-only, so we're not really
losing anything compared to where we are now. And the more I think about
it, the less I think we can introduce a new security-critical GUC and just
leave it as USERSET.
