I think that it's worth prototyping alternative algorithm, and
measuring the performances of those alternative and current
algorithms. This measurement should check not only the bottleneck
but also how much each algorithm increases the time that backends
need to wait for before they receive ack from walsender.

If it's reported that current algorithm is enough "effecient",
we can just leave the code as it is. OTOH, if not, let's adopt
the alternative one.
