max_parallel_degree currently defaults to 0.  I think we should enable

So, I suggest that the only sensible non-zero values here are probably
"1" or "2", given a default pool of 8 worker processes system-wide.
Andres told me yesterday he'd vote for "2".  Any other opinions?
It has to be at least 2 for beta purposes, else you are not testing
situations with more than one worker process at all, which would be
rather a large omission no?
That's what Andres, thought, too.  From my point of view, the big
thing is to be using workers at all.  It is of course possible that
there could be some bugs where a single worker is not enough, but
there's a lot of types of bug where even one worker would probably
find the problem.  But I'm OK with changing the default to 2.

I'm curious.

Why not 4? As most processors now have at least 4 physical cores, & surely it be more likely to flush out race conditions.
