I guess what should happen is that pg_dump should include a
SET default_text_search_config = 'foo'
just before the CREATE INDEX, like we do for other variables.  Of
course, in order for this to work, the index itself must know what value
was used on creation.  Oleg already dismissed my suggestion of putting
it into the index itself (a metapage or something).

Maybe store it in reloptions?
