FWIW, I'd much rather see us get it right the first time than release
PG10 with a syntax that we'll regret later.  I do not think that beta2,
or even beta3, is too late for such a change.

I'm not taking a position on whether this proposal is actually better
than what we have.  But if there's a consensus that it is, we should
go ahead and do it, not worry that it's too late.
