And you're not alone in holding that opinion despite having no shred
of evidence that it's worthwhile expanding the cache that far.

However, since we've gotten tired of hearing this FUD over and over,
8.1 will have the ability to set shared_buffers as high as you want.
I expect next we'll be hearing from people complaining that they
set shared_buffers to use all of RAM and performance went into the
tank ...
