If that's not on TODO already, it certainly should be --- but again,
I don't see that happening for 8.1.  We've lived with it for years
so it hardly counts as "must fix for 8.1".

Were you thinking of proposing a multiline output format for \df when
there are named parameters?  We could plan on doing that in 8.2,
assuming someone steps up to fix the formatting code by then.
