Unfortunately the last few proposals, like spawning backends, to deal
with autonomous xacts aren't really suitable for replication, unless you
only have very large ones.  And it really needs to be an implementation
where ATs can freely be switched inbetween.  On the other hand, a good
deal of problems (like locking) shouldn't be an issue, since there's
obviously a possible execution schedule.

I suspect this'd need some low-level implemention close to xact.c that'd
allow switching between transactions.
