Actually, I think FROM SESSION is unclear, as it opens the question
whether the value to be applied is the session-wide setting or the
currently active one.  Inside a transaction that has done SET LOCAL,
these are different things.

I think we pretty clearly want to have it take the currently active
setting, and I'd vote for FROM CURRENT as the best way of expressing
