Right now ApplyContext cleaned after each transaction and by this patch I 
suggest to clean it after each command counter increment. 

So in your definitions that is ApplyMessageContext, most short-lived one. We can
rename now ApplyContext -> ApplyMessageContext to make that clear and avoid
possible name conflict when somebody will decide to keep something during whole
transaction or worker lifespan.

P.S. It also seems to me now that resetting context in ensure_transaction() 
isn’t that
good idea, probably better just explicitly call reset at the end of each 
function involved.
