It will, but not tons. The biggest cost (at least if there are any long
running xacts) will be replaying since the restart_lsn when you restart the
decoding session, which will happen whether you reconnect or just stop
decoding and return to command mode.

No, I don't think it is, and I applied the change you made to suppress it.

Same thread, I just think these are two somewhat separate changes. One is
just in the walsender and allows return to command mode during waiting for
WAL. The other is more intrusive into the reorder buffer etc and allows
aborting decoding during commit processing. So two separate patches make
sense here IMO, one on top of the other.

I use git and just "git format-patch -2" to prepare a stack of two patches
from two separate commits.
