Given these remarks from Tom:
Where we are currently at is experimenting to find
out what autovacuum's control knobs ought to be. The catalog
a suitably low-effort way to expose a first cut at the knobs.
doesn't making language level changes seem more than somewhat
premature? Or have we finished experimenting?
Well, the only one I could possibly see removing would be threshold,
but the reality is that these parameters have been kicking around
since 7.4, so...
But I do like Richard Huxton's suggestion for syntax... that looks a
lot more flexible than what I proposed.
The only other thought that comes to mind is that such syntax will
make it a *lot* more verbose to set all the options for a table. But
I don't know how often people feel the need to set *all* of them at
once... Still, it might be worth continuing to support people poking
values directly into the table; I just don't think we want to make
that the official interface.
