Changes made per discussion.

Removed the comments on TransactionIdDidCommit and
TransactionIdDidAbort . It's not going to be relevant for the immense
majority of callers anyway, and callers that are looking up arbitrary
user supplied XIDs will (hopefully) be looking at
TransactionIdInRecentPast anyway.

I'll be leaving the 'xid' vs 'bigint' issues elsewhere in Pg for next
release, nowhere near time for that now.
