AFAICT there isn't any market for a backport of txid.  Slony won't
depend on it before their next release, which will require PG >= 8.3
for other reasons.  Skytools already has an internal version in their
existing releases.  And the code won't work before PG 8.2 so any
backport couldn't go very far anyway.

So while Andrew's statement is true in general, I don't think
it's very relevant to a consideration of what to do with txid.
