Sure, that's also possible. But no such patch is on the table now.
Someone (Tom?) mentioned upthread that if we wanted to do cleanup it
should be more than just one GUC, and I agree with that, and I'm willing
to investigate when the current compat GUCs went in and create a patch
to remove the really old ones. My inclination would be to just do this
as part of 10.0. (And I agree with Robert's comments about parallel
being the most likely driver for bumping to 10.0).
