I'm a little worried about whether this will break assumptions that
vacuum doesn't have an XID. I don't immediately see how it would,
but it seems a bit shaky.
I find it hard to believe that the act of assigning an XID would add
measurably to the cost of a vacuum, so Robert's performance concern
doesn't sound very exciting. If this works, I think it's fine to
adopt as a permanent solution.
