I'm not thrilled by that proposal.  The length limits on comments are
very much shorter than what is sensible to use in catalogs.sgml (at
least if you want the comments to look passable in \d displays).  And
I don't want people trying to serve two different use-cases when they
write those.

Perhaps it'd work to pull column comments from the C header files
--- any same-line comment in catalog/pg_*.h is probably short enough to
serve this purpose usefully.
