Yes, please. We've already agreed to make changes to have a better user experience and ask those who really care about certain performance aspects to have to configure for performance instead (see: wal_level changes), I view this as being very much in that same vein. I know one argument in the past has been that we don't have a tool that can be used to check all of the checksums, but that's also changed now that pgBackRest supports verifying checksums during backups. I'm all for adding a tool to core to perform a validation too, of course, though it does make a lot of sense to validate checksums during backup since you're reading all the pages anyway. Thanks!
