If anyone wishes to confirm that, I recommend this method:

PostgreSQL has not required that from contributors, though.  For putative
regressions this small, we've either analyzed them theoretically or just
dismissed them.

The key judgment to finalize here is whether it's okay to release this feature
given its current effect[1], when enabled, on performance.  That is more
controversial than the potential ~2% regression for old_snapshot_threshold=-1.
Alvaro[2] and Robert[3] are okay releasing that way, and Andres[4] is not.  If
anyone else wants to weigh in, now is the time.
