Right, but I wasn't sure if that'd be considered acceptable.

So, in a nutshell, if all the other issues of pg_upgrade get ironed out
and the only blocker was a change in the on-disk format of a type,
including both the old and the new versions in the next major release
would be an option seriously considered.

Well, that's got to make it easiesr.

Have a nice day,
