I think the ones in the main functions need to be current snapshot. I
think the one in ri_Check_Pk_Match doesn't need to be. That's there to see
if this same transaction has inserted a new row with the old value of the
updated/deleted pk row and the serializable snapshot should be fine.
Any conflicting attempts from another transaction should be waiting on our
completion due to the unique index I think.

Well, I think that not doing so would only change the error from a
serialization error to a matching row exists error. It might be a bit
surprising if you've just done a select yourself and seen that there were
no matching rows, but I'm not sure that it's a big deal as long as it
errors as appropriate.
