If you tell me how to best test it, I do have a 4-socket server sitting idly
in the corner (well, a corner reachable by SSH). I can get us some numbers,
but I haven't been following the snapshot_too_old so I'll need some guidance
on what to test.

I think it'd be cool if you could test the effect of the feature in
read-only (and additionally read-mostly?) workload with various client
counts and snapshot_too_old values. For the latter maybe -1, 0, 10, 60
or such?  I've done so (accidentally comparing 0 and 1 instead of -1 and
1) on a two socket machine in:

It'd be very interesting to see how big the penalty is on a bigger box.

OK. I do have results from mater with different values for the GUC (-1, 0, 10, 60), but I'm struggling with the reverts. Can you provide a patch against current master (commit 4bbc1a7e) that does the revert?
