while i'm not at all comfortable with the idea of a GUC for this, the
WAIT clause seems to be useful.
just out of curiosity, why the NOWAIT patch wasn't do it that way in
first place, i mean like a WAIT clause and when receiving NOWAIT
transform it in WAIT 0?
maybe dicussion?

there's concensus in adding a WAIT clause?
