Yes, I agree with you that the loops are still entwined. They're at
least now in a single function, though, which IMHO is a slight

I agree with you that just checking:

  if (oidset_count() != 0)

would be fine, too. Or I am even OK with leaving the existing tablesize
check. It is a little intimate with the implementation details, but I
suspect that if oidset were to change (e.g., to initialize the buckets
immediately), the problem would be pretty apparent in the tests.

And in fact, we can test by just changing the conditional in
tip_oid_contains to if(0), which quite clearly fails t5500.60 (along
with others).

So I don't think it's the end of the world to leave it (but I also am
not opposed to the other options discussed).
