Yes, it seems like a Small Matter Of Programming.


In seriousness, yes, it would seem a reasonable idea to calculate some
of these values a bit more dynamically.  

I would be inclined to start with something that ran a workload, and
provided static values based on how that workload went.  That would
require NO intervention inside the DB server; it could be accomplished
simply by writing a database script.  Feel free to contribute either a
script or a backend "hack"...
