I don't really agree. For me manual and automated prewarming are pretty
closely related. Sure they have their independent usages, and not too
much code might be shared. But grouping them in the same extension seems
to make sense, it's confusing to have closely related but independent

Should probably be at some regular interval - not sure if checkpoints
are the best time (or if it's even realistic to tie a bgworker to
checkpoints), since checkpoints have a significant impact on the state
of shared_buffers.
