OK, sounds like the only way is to have a dedicated plug-in. 

if (resource_manager_hook)
   set RmgrTable in plugin
   normal static definition (but no longer Const)

...or variations of the above depending upon whether we want to allow
redefining existing Rmgrs - not something I personally want.

Plus something to say "xlog record found for unknown Rmgr".

Plus changes to all places that refer to RM_MAX_ID and replace with a
global value of RmgrTableEntries.

We can then get rid of the two reserved Rmgr values...

Will that do it?
