We previously discussed compressing the numeric data type for small values:

We didn't do this for 8.3 but in any case Tom did suggest we ought to reverse the weight and sign/dscale so we could do this sometime without introducing
another incompatibility.

I had forgotten about that, but it does seem like a good idea to do it now.
Any objections?

For in-place upgrade purpose It would be good change also OID for numeric type and preserve current OID for current implementation on updated system.

If we want to get into that game we need a better way of allocating Oids. Right now anything not currently used is liable to be grabbed, so there's a high risk of reuse.
