I wonder if we should take pg_read_file (and the rest of genfile.c)
back out of the backend and stick them into contrib/adminpack.  The
argument for having them in the backend was always pretty weak to me.
In particular, a DBA who doesn't want them in his system for security
reasons has no simple way to get rid of them if they're in core, but
not installing a contrib module is easy enough.
