Yeah, as per what we were just saying, performance of that code isn't
really an issue right now.  Supporting a nicer input format is probably
the biggest step forward that could be taken, but that will require some
major work :-(.  We've also talked about things like supporting
regprocedure rather than only regproc (ie disambiguating overloaded
functions), likewise regoperator, and so on, with an eye to reducing
the number of places where people have to write numeric OIDs in the
input.  There's some threads on this in the archives, but I'm too
lazy to look.
