Hmm, not sure.  ISTM log_checkpoint is oriented to people who know what
they are doing, whereas checkpoint_warning is more targeted to trying
to help people who don't.  Perhaps you could make an argument that
checkpoint_warning is useless because the people whom it's meant to help
won't notice the warning anyway --- but I doubt that it's been
"superseded" by log_checkpoint, because the latter would only be enabled
by people who already have a clue that checkpoint performance is something
to worry about.

Or in short, this may be a fine change to make, but I don't like your
argument for it.
