Well, can any of those people try running with this patch? That'd be
a good way of getting some confidence in it.
Generally, I agree that something needs to be back-patched here. But
we don't want to create a situation where we fix some people and break
others, and it's not too obvious that we have a way to get there.
Personally, I favor adding some kind of GUC to control the behavior,
but I'm not exactly sure what the shape of it ought to be.
