I agree: it also complicates the common case (calling relation_open()
and waiting to acquire for a lock).

If anything, you could perhaps refactor relation_open_nowait() to be
implemented in terms of relation_open() (first try to get the lock, then
do a relation_open(rel, NoLock)), but since you'd only be saving a
handful of duplicated lines, it hardly seems worth it.
