This would clearly be an adjustment to the submitted patch, which
happens regularly during the review and commit process and is part of
the commitfest process, so I don't agree that holding it to new-feature
level is correct when it's a change which is entirely relevant to this
new feature, and one which a committer is asking to be included as part
of the change.  Nor do I feel particularly bad about asking for feature
authors to be prepared to rework parts of their feature based on
feedback during the commitfest process.

I would have liked to have realized this oddity with the WAL naming
scheme for not-16MB-WALs earlier too, but it's unfortunately not within
my abilities to change that.  That does not mean that we shouldn't be
cognizant of the impact that this new feature will have in exposing this
naming scheme, one which there seems to be agreement is bad, to users.

That said, David is taking a look at it to try and be helpful.

Vote-counting seems a bit premature given that there hasn't been any
particularly clear asking for votes.  Additionally, I believe Peter also
seemed concerned that the existing naming scheme which, if used with,
say, 64MB segments, wouldn't match LSNs either, in this post:
