What about arranging postmaster's main loop so that it starts the stats
collector process if one of the options is activated (assuming they were
all off at start)?  Right now you have to restart the server, but I
don't see why it has to be like that.

That has even less overhead.  We will have to keep the GUC var, but I
don't think that's too onerous, is it?
