I'm not sure what to do with this patch. There was some resistance to the idea originally; then after some discussion, there was some apparent agreement that it might be useful on occasion. Later, a patch was posted, but there was almost no review of it; except to say that it should probably be reworked on top of an hypothetical, future XLogReader feature.
Since it doesn't look like we're going anywhere with it soon, I'm going to close it as returned with feedback. Hopefully, if we get XLogReader in 9.3, we will have time to rebase this patch on top of that. (I invite Amit to give Heikki's version of XLogReader patch a look.)
