No, I don't think that's concensus yet. If you want to make it
configurable on that level you need to have:
1) compression format signature on fpws
2) mapping between identifiers for compression formats and the libraries 
implementing them.

Otherwise you can only change the configuration at initdb time...

I'd suggest starting by publishing test results with a more modern
compression formats, but without hacks like increasing padding.
