Bruno et al,

Any self-repsecting lurker would know that oids as row identifiers are depreciated in postgres. Can anyone provide a brief history regarding the reasoning behind using them as row identifiers in the first place? I see a discussion of their use as various primary keys in he system catalog in the oid-datatype doc page, but not regarding their history as 'user-space' row ids.
