This patch applies cleanly on cccbdde and compiles.  However,
documentation in config.sgml is needed.

The concept is simple enough though there seems to be some argument
about whether or not the patch is necessary.  In my experience 128K
should be more than large enough for a chunk size, but I'll buy the
argument that libpq is acting as a barrier in this case.

I'm marking this patch "Waiting on Author" for required documentation.
