It's a bit of extra meta-data which can be nice to have (I know we use
that field for our own purposes..).  On the flip side, I've never liked
that you have to update pg_database to change it, so perhaps we should
get rid of it and remove that temptation.

The other field we regularly update in pg_database is datallowconn...
Would love to see that as an actual ALTER DATABASE command instead...

        Thanks,
