There are times when it would be useful to have the application_name
connection parameter displayed in the process name - and thus in ps and
pg_top - in addition to the user and database name.
Would there be any downside to this? If it were done, are there any
suggestions on how it could be added the process name so as to minimize
impact on anything that might be trying to parse that line?
