Actually, the real question in my mind is why Slony can't be trusted
to use the right number of connections to start with.  If you don't
trust it that far, what are you doing letting it into your database as
superuser to start with?

As for "connection-limited superuser", if you can't do ALTER USER SET
on yourself then you aren't a superuser, so any such restriction is
illusory anyway.
