How? There will be an XLOG entry inserting the heap tuple before the
XLOG entry that updates the index. Rollforward will redo both. The
heap tuple might not get committed, but it'll be there.

None of it works for index types that don't do XLOG entries (which I
think may currently be true for everything except btree :-( ...). I
don't see how that changes if we alter the way this bit is done.
