If we're going to do something like that, I'd rather see it exposed as a
more general "at most N connections" knob, where the user could choose
N.  There are plenty of other scenarios where such a restriction could
be useful --- for instance, "make check" runs up against
max-processes-per-user limits on a number of platforms.

I would also rather that the user be forced to supply that number, to
make certain he realizes that he's got a very low number-of-connections
resource limit.  Sweeping such problems under the rug is exactly what
"make check" should not do.
