I've calmed down a little and am no longer wanting to insist on
reversion.  My little Perl script is turning over and has found a number
of issues besides the original TOAST_INDEX_HACK one; some of them may
have been there before, so I'm thinking I'm going to add it to src/tools
rather than just treat it as a one-shot.

We still have the issue of how Bruce managed to miss undeclared-function
warnings in some files.  I'm concerned that that problem may remain for
some platforms or option combinations.  Is there a way to get the
buildfarm to highlight compiler warnings?
