This is true at the moment. Alvaro is hard at work on nested
transactions, which will imply more than one active XID per connection.
It's not decided yet how that will reflect into pg_locks, but I'd expect
there will be some visible consequence...
Probably the question that should have been asked at the outset of this
thread is "why do you want to know"? I can't offhand think of a good
reason for clients to be interested in transaction numbers --- they are
surely just an internal implementation detail.
