OK, but does that actually do much of anything for your performance
complaint?  Just after GlobalXmin has passed a truncation point, *every*
vacuum the system does will start performing a flush-n-fsync, which
seems like exactly what you didn't like.  If the syncs were spread out
in time for different rels then maybe this idea would help, but AFAICS
they won't be.
