What if setup_user() succeeds as a function but the transaction it belongs

ISTM that the security models requires that USER_IS_AUDITOR is reverted, so
although it is definitely a session variable, it must be transactional
(MVCC) nevertheless.

No strong opinion here.

IMO the simplest answer should be the main focus here: if it's session
level, it's session level. Not kinda-sesion-level kinda-transaction-level.

I can see occasional uses for what you describe though. If we landed up
with an xact scope option like we have for SET LOCAL GUCs, the option to
mark it ON COMMIT RESET or ON COMMIT SET would be useful I guess. I'm not
sure if it's worth the complexity.

I guess defaulting to rolling back variable effects on xact rollback would
be ok too. Just kind of limiting.
