I agree with Robert. What happen if we intentionally don't apply the
truncation WAL and switched over? If we insert a tuple on the new
master server to a block that has been truncated on the old master,
the WAL apply on the new standby will fail? I guess there are such
corner cases causing failures of WAL replay after switch-over.
