Oracle, however, does have a problem with "ORA-1555 Snapshot too old",
precisely because of their implementation of MVCC. In other words, if
your query is running long and Oracle is not able to reconstruct the old
rows from the UNDO segments, you're out of luck and your query will die.
The greatest burden of the Postgres implementation is the fact that
there is no row id, so that the table header and the indexes need to be
updated much more frequently than is the case with Oracle.
