Thank you for explaining.
I understood but since the future syntax is yet to be reached
consensus, I thought that it would be difficult  to refuse particular
kind of parentheses for now.

I meant that it can skip to acquire spin lock at least, so it will
optimise that logic.
But anyway I agree with making SyncRepGetSyncStandbys returns am_sync variable.
