That is NOT a good example. That patch is a first-cut of a non-trivial
optimizer feature that was submitted just before beta1 shipped, by
someone who hasn't modified the optimizer before. Jan's patch was a
contrib module that has been already developed by the Skype folks, and
it goes without saying that Jan has contributed to Postgres extensively.

There are some fairly obvious, objective reasons why txid differs from
the inline-SQL-SRF patch.

That said, I agree that the process should have been followed in this
