I don't know any way to actually do that, though.  If we put two entries
in pg_language then functions created in plpython will stay associated
with that entry.  That'd probably be the worst of all possible worlds,
since a person looking at pg_language would quite reasonably assume that
plpython was still trusted and the untrusted plpythonu was just an
addition.  (Especially if he happened to know that such an addition was
planned long ago.)  You could shoot yourself in the foot pretty badly
with such a misunderstanding :-(

The behavior that I think would be most useful would be to automatically
... LANGUAGE "plpythonu".  Which we could do with an ugly hack in CREATE
FUNCTION (ugly, but no worse than things we've done to index opclass
names, for example).  But it could be too confusing.
