One question that just came to mind is whether Simon's no-commit-wait
patch doesn't fundamentally alter the context of discussion for this.
Aside from the prospect that people won't really care about group commit
if they can just use the periodic-WAL-sync approach, ISTM that one way
to get group commit is to just make everybody wait for the dedicated
WAL writer to write their commit record.  With a sufficiently short
delay between write/fsync attempts in the background process, won't
that net out at about the same place as a complicated group-commit
