Agreement from here on this point. Andres, what's still remaining on my side is to know how to we detect in XLoginsert() how we update the LSN progress. I was willing to add XLogInsertExtended() with a complementary int/bool flag and let XLogInsert() alone as you don't like much doing this decision making using just the record type as I did in one of the patch upthread, however you did not like this idea either.
