I liked this patch very much. It gives details on a lot of the
internals we expose to users. Some of my changes were:

* tightening the wording
* restructuring the flow
* splitting out user-visible details (prepared transactions) from
internals, e.g., xid, vxid, subtransactions
* adding references from places in our docs to these new sections

I plan to apply this and backpatch it to all supported versions since
these details apply to all versions. These docs should enable our users
to much better understand and monitor Postgres.

Updated patch attached.
