To make it worse, we don't have test code for a portion of the new
functionality: it turned out that the test module only tests half of it.
And in order to test the other half, we have a pending patch for some
pg_recvlogical changes, but we still don't have the actual test script.
So we would need to

1. commit the pg_recvlogical patch, assuming it's OK now.
2. write the test script to use that
3. commit the fix patch written a few days ago (which is still

We could also commit the fix without the test, but that doesn't seem a
great idea.

As Craig, I am not happy with this outcome.  But realistically I think
it's the best decision at this point.
