Actually, my initial UNDO design and prototype had several other
advantages over HOT (better performance, inherent time-travel, smaller
on-disk footprint, and *no* vacuum).  The major issue was due to the
amount of architecture changes Postgres would've required and Bruce's
advice regarding the community's inability to accept such a large and
complex change.
