No, I was thinking of PreAuthDelay.  There might be cases where even
that is too late in the procedure --- probably not on Unix, but on
Windows there's a lot that happens before BackendInitialize.  But
offhand I don't know how we'd have a configurable delay much earlier
... custom insertions of hardwired delays into the source code are
probably the only good approach if you find that, say, guc.c
initialization fails in individual backends under Windows.

Back at the ranch, though, the question was whether it'd be worth
honoring PreAuthDelay in the other startup code paths such as
