I think the case for it got a whole lot weaker in 8.3, with lazy

Agreed.  Let's see if we get requests for it in >= 8.3 releases.

In the original submission message you find this text:

: attached is our patch against HEAD which enables extending CommandIds
: to 64-bit. This is for enabling long transactions that really do that
: much non-read-only work in one transaction.

Question for Hans-Juergen and Zoltan: have you tested 8.3 and do you
still see the need for this?

good morning,

i have seen this problem two or three times within the past 2-3 years or so. so, it can basically happen in the field for some special purpose applications but i don't see this as an every day problem. it would be nice to have it in. we could also go for some special contrib module which could contain a patch along with some documentation but i am not quite sure how this fits in there.
we would of course maintain the patch.

   many thanks,
