I thought about this a bit more. There are a couple of easy things we
could do here.
The 1000-page threshold could be made into a GUC.
We could add a per-table reloption for parallel-degree that would
override the calculation.
Neither of those things is very smart, but they'd probably both help
some people. If someone is able to produce a patch for either or both
of these things *quickly*, we could possibly try to squeeze it into
9.6 as a cleanup of work already done.
