I agree, but such a comment immediately begs the question: What is the
list of commands this applies to? I was surprised how long a list it was
myself, hence the patch.

(Checks)...The man pages for VACUUM, CREATE TABLESPACE, CLUSTER and
REINDEX DATABASE don't mention they are not allowed inside a transaction
block at all, so I'm not sure if doing it the other way around helps
with maintaining docs...

I prefer useful info rather than hidden gotchas, even if the list might
possibly be < 100% exactly correct. At least we can say we tried.
