I have not proposed fooling with -t/-T; people are used to that one,
and it's a core part of what pgbench does, so it's reasonable to expect
that people are familiar with it. It helps also that -t and -T do
somewhat related things, ie constrain the length of the test --- so even
if you pick the wrong one, you still get behavior that's somewhat sane.

Meh. If I thought -P would be that popular, I'd expect people to get
used to the issue. I don't believe it though.
