I'm not exactly following what that proves? It seems like this is still

Strictly speaking, even "SELECT * FROM ordered_inserts" isn't promising
anything about row order.
Hmm. If we do
INSERT INTO foo
SELECT ... ORDER BY
is that not guaranteed to insert in the desired order? We used to
suggest that in the old CLUSTER docs. (I realize that's not what I
suggested, but it seems relevant nevertheless.)
