In [1], I proposed that we solve the problem of supporting PREPARED
transactions involving foreign servers and in subsequent mail Vinayak
agreed to that. But this goal has wider scope than that proposal. I am
fine widening the scope, but then it would again lead to the same
discussion we had about the big picture. May be you want to share
design (or point out the parts of this design that will help) for
solving smaller problem and tone down the patch for the same.
