Perhaps, but the real problem is still this:

We can't even get everybody to pgindent patches before commit, let alone
update typedefs.list.  So sooner or later your process is going to need
to involve getting a current list from the buildfarm.

Well, that just shows you don't know how to use it.  You can tell pgindent
to use an out-of-tree copy of typedefs.list.  I have the curl fetch and
using the out-of-tree list all nicely scripted ;-)

There might be something to be said for removing the typedefs list from
git altogether, and adjusting the standard wrapper script to pull it from
the buildfarm into a .gitignore'd location if there's not a copy there
