I think that it makes sense to do that. Those are still reasonable
defaults for a machine with 2GB of RAM, maybe even with less.
We're talking about putting this only in a release that will come
out in 2014. How many machines used for a database server that new
will have less than that?
A lot. A whole lot, more than what most people have in production with
more than that. You are forgetting a very large segment of the
population who run... VMs.
Why don't we just have 3 default config files:
Have initdb detect how much memory is available on the machine in TOTAL
and pick the most appropriate.
