Renaming max_connections is far too big a compatibility break to
consider without far more benefit than what this patch is aiming at.
I'm not prepared to endure the number of beatings I'd have to take if
we did that.

But I also agree that making max_wal_senders act as both a minimum and
a maximum is no good.  +1 to everything Josh Berkus said.
