None, but feel free to start coding for 8.3.

That seems like a rather spectacular overstatement of the likely
benefits, not to mention a misdescription of what was discussed.

AFAIR what was discussed was separating
        - schema stuff needed before loading data
        - table data
        - schema stuff needed after loading data
where the last category boils down to "indexes and then foreign keys".
All the "other stuff" such as functions really needs to be in the
first part ... or at least there's no visible benefit to delaying
loading it.
