But it would still do that - it would just compare the createxid of
the index against some snapshot, and the query would be replanned
if the cached result of this comparison differs from the one the
current snapshot yields.
It might well be that this won't work, because the planner is invoked
in situations where there is no active snapshot - I'm not sure if your
comment refers to that case, or not.
