I think (a) would be rather ungainly (this is a nicely separated piece of
functionality, with a lot of messages), and (b) would be burdensome and make
catalog name part of compatibility layer.

So really, really there should exist initialization code called once on
first entry anywhere, and catalog inserted there.
