Just for the record: I don't currently think a rewrite to use SLRU makes 
any sense for imessages.

But to answer Kevin's question: I don't expect to have the prerequisite 
patches committed this CF, as I don't think it currently makes any sense 
for Postgres to apply them. Nor did I feel there's general consensus 
that having we want to have a dynamic memory allocator (for shared memory).

It would be nice to be able to keep track of these kind of patches, 
which are available to Postgres and get maintained, but aren't currently 
needed or wanted. But do we want to use the CF application for that? How 
do you prefer to proceed with these patches?

It's also worth noting that Simon requested more and better 
documentation. But I simply can't promise to write anything soon.
