As a fallout of this work that I haven't seen made explicit, a session
opening a transaction and then sitting around doing nothing will not
cause as many problems as it used to -- for example it won't cause
VACUUM to be unable to clean up dead rows.  Is this correct?

Nowadays this is no longer much of a problem, but it used to be, back
when drivers were more broken than they are now (when they had the
commit method send "COMMIT; BEGIN"); however, it still seems to me like
a big step forwards.
