As far as I can see Petr has addressed all the outstanding issues in
this patch and it's ready for a review.  The patch applies with some
easily-fixed conflicts:

$ git apply -3 ../other/0002-seqam-2015-03-05.patch
error: patch failed: src/include/catalog/pg_proc.h:5225
Falling back to three-way merge...
Applied patch to 'src/include/catalog/pg_proc.h' with conflicts.

Simon, you are signed up to review.  Do you have an idea of when you'll
be doing that?
