I don't think so.   But in the cluster, from my experience of PG-2, it
is essential to manage snapshot consistent among all the node involved
and we should be very careful to make other local tasks, for example,
autovacuum and analyze, not disturb other transactions because they
can become global long transactions very easily.

They don't happen in parallel pg_restore, parallel pg_dump or other
local parallelisms.

So I think their patch may be useful in cluster environment too.
