pinpoint regarding such a change would be where to gather a
description of all those storage parameters, which are already divided
by type: per-table and per-index. A new section called "Storage
Parameters" in the chapter "Server Configuration", just after "Query
Planning" for example would make sense. Then we could have a section
for indexes parameters, one for tables, and one for parameters shared
between both, like fillfactor. Then we would need to add to link to
this new section in the pages of CREATE/ALTER TABLE/INDEX.
