Documentation of the original form of the constraint, perhaps?

It would be a good idea for the system catalog descriptions to note that
decompiling the binary form is better for tools to do.  When you're just
scavenging through the catalogs by hand, though, I think the source
forms are convenient to have.

The binary forms have their own disadvantages, btw, although I think the
addition of dependency tracking has mitigated the worst ones.  You may
care to consult the archives for prior discussions of adsrc vs. adbin.
