Well, there is some, but I agree that it ought to be mentioned where
the other config options are listed.  Applied with additions, viz

+          Use 64-bit integer storage for datetimes and intervals, rather
+          than the default floating-point storage.  This reduces the range
+          of representable values but guarantees microsecond precision across
+          the full range (see <xref linkend="datatype-datetime"> for more
+          information).  Note also that the integer datetimes code is newer
+          than the floating-point code, and we still find bugs in it from time
+          to time.
