Commenting on this separately because it's a separate issue.

I'd prefer that it was some kind of a checksum ID code -- e.g. 0 for no
checksum, 1 for FNV-1a-SR3, etc. That would allow us to release 9.4 with
a new algorithm without forcing existing users to change.

initdb would have to take the code as an option, probably in string

What do you think?
