I believe ActiveSnapshot has to be set during CREATE INDEX CONCURRENTLY if
it's an expression index which calls a function which needs a snapshot...
AFAICT VACUUM had better not ever need a snapshot because its xmin isn't
included in other vacuum commands' globalxmin so there's no guarantee that if
it had a snapshot that the tuples visible in that snapshot wouldn't disappear
out from under it.
Ask me about EnterpriseDB's 24x7 Postgres support!
