If multiple processes are using the same file via the BufFile
interface, I think that it is absolutely necessary that there should
be a provision to track the "attach count" of the BufFile.  Each
process that reaches EOXact decrements the attach count and when it
reaches 0, the process that reduced it to 0 removes the BufFile.  I
think anything that's based on the notion that leaders will remove
files and workers won't is going to be fragile and limiting, and I am
going to push hard against any such proposal.
