BTW, it strikes me that a GUC variable is quite the wrong way to go
about this.  The right way is a table storage parameter, a la FILLFACTOR,
so that it can be set on a per-table basis.  That would also give us a
chance to fix my concern about needs_toast_table: the case where we
might need a toast table that we didn't need before is where the toast
threshold is lowered via ALTER TABLE SET, and we could reasonably make
that command recheck the situation.
