My point is that we shouldn't be putting checks into DDL commands about
single-user mode if the actual cause of the issue is in a lower-level
system.  Not all uses of a particular DDL command necessary use a latch,
for example.  Also, there could be other things that hit a latch that
are reachable in single-user mode that we haven't found yet.

So I think the check should either go somewhere in the latch code, or
possibly in the libpqwalreceiver code.  Or we make the latch code work
so that the check-for-postmaster-death code becomes a noop in
single-user mode.  Suggestions?
