That seems kind of arbitrary.  Start and Cache are just as relevant.

You can get those from the sequence.  Running \d on a table doesn't show
the table data either.  So I think this is a valid distinction.

Yeah, but then that would look weird if only one heading were
abbreviated.  The total display width is good, so we don't need to
squeeze it too hard.

This is meant to be a verb, as in "does it cycle?".  I have changed it
to "Cycles?" to match other similar headings.

Yeah that is a bit ugly, but I have just moved existing code around.

I have now committed my patch with minor adjustments, so we have
something working for PG10.
