Anyway, after further thought I've concluded that we really should
supply something that returns the Insert pointer, as this would be
useful for debugging and system-monitoring purposes. It's clear however
that we also need something that returns the Write pointer, as that's
what's needed for partial log-shipping.  So my vote is for two
functions, both read-only (and hence not superuser-only).  Not sure
what to name them exactly.

Dumb question... is there any need to be able to get those values in sync (I'm assuming that in the time taken to call two separate functions the value on the second function called could change from what it was when the first function was called)? Should there be a SRF that returns both values?
