I wonder if there's much of a use case for any statements aside from CREATE
statements. If we restrict it to CREATE statements we could hack things to
create pg_depend entries automatically. In which case we wouldn't need an
uninstall script at all.

The hacks to do this seem pretty dirty but on the other hand the idea of
having modules consist of a bunch of objects rather than arbitrary SQL
actually seems cleaner and more robust.
