I was thinking that you would put the smallest in-progress xmax on the
page there, and you would test it against OldestXmin. If all
transactions commit, there surely isn't anything to prune until that xid
falls beyond the OldestXmin horizon. If an inserting transaction aborts,
we could prune the aborted tuple earlier, but optimizing for aborts
doesn't seem that important.
