For efficiency's sake it can easily be done at run time, one extra
logarithm calculation per query will not be noticeable. Having a
proper user interface to make it configurable and changeable is where
the complexity is. We might just decide to go with something good
enough as even the 31 bin solution would bloat the pg_stat_statements
data structure only by about 10%.

Selecting a single row takes about 20us on my computer, I picked 100us
as a reasonable limit below where the exact speed doesn't matter
