That's what I had in mind.

No, I don't agree.  I think TBMSharedIterator should be an unshared
structure created by tbm_attach_shared_iterate, which can internally
contain backend-private state like a TBMIterateResult, and which can
also contain a pointer to the shared-memory structure previously
created by tbm_prepare_shared_iterate.  That thing needs to be called
something other than a TBMSharedIterator, like TBMSharedIterationState
or something.
