Doing it in CLUSTER would be weird. However perhaps it would be useful to have
some sort of stand-alone tool that just bumped all the xmin/xmax's. It would
have to be super-user-only and carry big warning labels saying it breaks MVCC.

But it would be useful any time you have a table that you want to exempt a
particular table from serializable snapshots. Basically a per-table way to
force a read-committed snapshot on. Though, actually it's not quite a
read-committed snapshot is it? Anyone using an old serializable snapshot will
see what, no tuples at all?
