A lingering problem I have had, which I've never solved, was that at
some point in sql-ledger history, OIDs became required, but I didn't
have them. I think I've fixed all the relevant tables, but probably not
all of them.
I'm not asking you to fix things, but tell me.

In some cases, it may be reasonable for someone to fix the database
directly, so please don't cache too much, and recheck old problems.
I'd love to have this in a test framework.
