The problem with (1) is that it creates side-effects that could be bad;
Robert's already pointed out one close-to-show-stopper consequence,
and I have little confidence that there are not others.  In general,
if we got here without assigning an xid, there's a reason.

I think the bottom line is that we misdesigned the WAL representation
by assuming that this sort of info could always be piggybacked on a
transaction commit record.  It's time to fix that.
