What I didn't like about the docs was the classification of the function
as a "session information function".  There's certainly nothing
session-dependent about it.  I ended up putting it under "System Catalog
Information Functions", which isn't really quite right either but it's
closer than the other one.

I left it in for safety, but made it just return nulls --- there's no
point in wasting more code space on it than necessary, and certainly
no point in asking translators to translate a useless string.

Yeah, I couldn't see a good way around that either --- we could pstrdup
but that seems overkill, and adjusting the API of BuildTupleFromCStrings
to take const char ** doesn't look appetizing either.

2701 was claimed too.  You need to use the unused_oids script to find
unique free OIDs.
