ITYM max_worker_processes (ie, the cluster-wide pool size)?

One of my reasons for liking max_parallel_workers is that you can sensibly
compare it to max_worker_processes to figure out how many workers you're
likely to get.  If you think in terms of "degree" it takes some additional
mental arithmetic to understand what will happen.

Not under what I'm proposing.
