Well, I think we could drop node, if you like.  I think parallel
wouldn't be good to drop, though, because it sounds like we want a
global limit on parallel workers also, and that can't be just
max_workers.  So I think we should keep parallel in there for all of
them, and have max_parallel_workers and
max_parallel_workers_per_gather(_node).  The reloption and the Path
struct field can be parallel_workers rather than parallel_degree.
