Comment(by mcayland):

 I don't think changing the catalogs is violating the PostgreSQL
 development policy - for example, until reasonably recently the
 operator/operator class definitions were all done by inserting/updating
 the catalogs directly because the operator and operator class functions
 did not contain sufficient functionality at the time.

 Sure you can shoot yourself in the foot if you don't know what you're
 doing with the catalogs, but I don't see much elevated risk performing an
 upgrade that involves running a pre-packaged, test script.

 I agree with you that we should probably spin this out into a separate
 thread on postgis-users. If people are doing interesting things with their
 geometry columns, then that's where we'll find out about it.
