Based on your comments, I'm calling the patch series returned with feedback.
I built the series around the goal of making history maximally reviewable for
persons not insiders to commit 4f627f8. Having spent 90% of my 2015
PostgreSQL contribution time finding or fixing committed defects, my judgment
of how best to achieve that is no shout from the peanut gallery. (Neither is
your judgment.) In particular, I had in view two works, RLS and pg_audit,
that used the post-commit repair strategy you've advocated. But you gave me a
fair chance to make the case, and you stayed convinced that my repairs oppose
my goal. I can now follow your development of that belief, which is enough.
