WFM ... but seems like there should be some flavor of this statement
in the user-facing docs too (ie, "max_parallel_workers_per_gather >
max_parallel_workers is a bad idea unless you're trying to test what
happens when a plan can't get all the workers it planned for").  The
existing text makes some vague allusions suggesting that the two
GUCs might be interrelated, but I think it could be improved.
