IMHO, trying to do this using a function-based interface is a really
bad idea for exactly the reasons you mention.  I don't see why we'd
resist the idea of core syntax here; transactions are a core part of

There is, of course, the question of whether making LSNs such a
user-visible thing is a good idea in the first place, but that's a
separate question from issue of what syntax for such a thing is best.
