Both vacuuming and hot-pruning adjust xmin based on calling
TransactionIdLimitedForOldSnapshots(TransactionId recentXmin,
Relation relation).  I'm talking about having that function, if all
other conditions for the override pass, checking for a hash index,

I guess we were both talking a bit loosely since (as I mentioned
above) the function that adjusts the xmin is called for a vacuum or
pruning.  He mentioned one and I mentioned the other, but it's all
controlled by TransactionIdLimitedForOldSnapshots().

That's been covered all along.
