  TODO item is created before Robert Haas has provided an alternative
way to achieve the same thing. In some cases there are multiple ways
  achieve the same thing (example: shortcut options in psql) if it is
used quite frequently and people want some easy way of doing it. In
this case I
  don't think this is used frequently, so I don't see the need of
doing it. We should remove this TODO item.
