Yeah. Even if we'd had completed support for decoding on standby,
there's no way we could've implemented the required gymnastics for
getting logical replication to actually use it to support physical
failover for pg10, so it was always going to land in pg11.
This is very much a "how do we do it right when we do do it" topic,
not a pg10 issue.
