Right, but it makes harder to detect when a duplicate relcache entry is
going to be inserted. Judging from the commentary in the file this is
Another idea I had was:
1. at subtransaction start, add a special "boundary" message carrying
the new Xid.
2. at subtransaction abort, process the first chunk backwards until the
boundary message with the corresponding Xid is found; if it's not, jump
to the next and repeat.
At subtransaction commit nothing special needs to be done.
This avoids having to label each message and to change the message
