Yes, that is a problem.  We could show something in the server logs if
pg_tune hasn't been run.  Not sure what else we can do, but it would
give folks a one-stop thing to run to deal with performance

We could prevent the postmaster from starting unless they run pg_tune or
if they have modified postgresql.conf from the default.  Of course,
that's pretty drastic.
