That doesn't make sense to me: from a user's perspective, the "start
of the transaction" is when the BEGIN is issued, regardless of any
tricks we may play in the backend.

Making now() return the time the current transaction started is
reasonably logical; making now() return "the time when the first
command after the BEGIN in the current transaction was issued" makes a
lot less sense to me.
