Hmm.  I had been trying to avoid adding a GUC parameter for this ;-)

Have you got anything to back up the need for such an adjustment?

BTW, now that I look at this code more closely, I'm feeling dissatisfied
with Jan's custom adjustments to the ARC algorithm, particularly the
rule that it takes touches from two different transactions to get a page
into T2.  I preserved that logic in these proposed patches but I'm
thinking that we want to change it, independently of the ARC/2Q issue.
I'll start another thread in pghackers about that.  I bring it up now
just because I think that it has an impact on the desirable size of T1.
It might be unwise to put too much emphasis on comparative benchmarks
taken before we change that rule.
