Starting to look into this version now, but a small suggestion while
it's still fresh in mind: it might be easier, in future rounds, to
put all the files in a tarball and attach 'em as one big attachment.
At least with my mail setup, it's way easier to save off a tarball
and "tar xf" it than it is to individually save a dozen attachments.
I suspect that way might be easier on your end, too.

There's some value in posting a patchset as separate attachments
when it's possible to just apply the patches in series; Munro's patch
tester knows what to do with that, but not with a tarball AFAIK.
But in this case, there's little hope that the patch tester would
get it right anyhow.

regards, tom lane
