Eeek.  *Which* caller's search_path?  The string you're handed might've
come from multiple levels up.

There might be some point in allowing the caller itself to fully qualify
the name (before passing it down) with more ease than now.  We have
regclass and so forth, but those make a point of stripping schema
qualification when it's "unnecessary" according to the current search
path.  And yet on the third hand --- how often would it be the case that
this was an issue and yet the caller doesn't know which schema it has in
