I don't think it's beneficial to put this into pgbench. There really
isn't a relevant benefit over using a custom script here.


The scripts to run are the standard ones. The difference is in the
*initialization* phase (-i), namely the filler attribute size. There is no
custom script for initialization in pgbench, so ISTM that this argument does
not apply here.

The custom initialization is to run a manual ALTER after the
initialization.

Sure, it can be done this way.

I'm not sure about the implication of ALTER on the table storage, thus I prefer all benchmarks to run exactly the same straightforward way in all cases so as to avoid unwanted effects on what I'm trying to measure, which is already noisy and unstable enough.
