I've already taken it according to the commitfest app.  There's a lot of
things I don't like stylistically, but they all seem fixable, and I'm
working through them now.  The only actual bug I've found so far is a
race condition while setting MyProc->xmin (you can't do that separately
from verifying that the source transaction is still running, else
somebody else could see a global xmin that's gone backwards).

The first part is of fixed length, the second not so much.  I'm not
wedded to the syntax but I don't see anything wrong with it either.

Huh?  The last version of the patch has it only as SET TRANSACTION
SNAPSHOT, which I think is the right way.
