Maybe I'm missing something, but how does this prevent issues with
active slots that are currently accessing the WAL this patch now
suddenly allows to be removed? Especially for logical slots that seems
not unproblematic?

Besides that, this patch needs substantial spelling / language / comment
polishing. Horiguchi-san, it'd probably be good if you could make a
careful pass, and then maybe a native speaker could go over it?
