Doesn't matter if it starts eating their data...

2) Patch is not very big.

change some well-isolated placed.

It doesn't really matter how big the patch is, it's a question of "What did the patch fail to consider?". With something as complicated as the btree code, there's ample opportunities for missing things. (And FWIW, I'd argue that a 51kB patch is certainly not small, and a patch that is doing things in critical sections isn't terribly isolated).

I do think this will be a great addition, but it's just too late to be adding this to 9.6.

(BTW, I'm getting bounces from a.lebe...@postgrespro.ru, as well as postmaster@. I emailed i...@postgrespro.ru about this but never heard back.)
