Lazy-XID doesn't help on a write-mostly workload, but I would have
expected to see some benefit from the latestCompletedXid patch.

The rough tests I just finished suggest that the win to look for is
improvement of the very tail of the distribution --- well beyond the
90th percentile point which is the most we can see in Markus'
printout.  Can we get 95% and 99% response time percentiles?

For comparison, in my little test I got 0.828546 vs 0.873957 as the
99% percentile pgbench transaction times.
