I'd rather spend effort in fixing the problems that arise from big
databases; for example Hannu's patch for concurrent vacuum attacks one
of the problems that IMHO are important.  More elaborate partitioning
does too.

Anyway, if you're very excited about it, I don't think it's impossible
to code a super-postmaster that would redirect a client to the real
postmaster.  I even think it can be done without modifying the regular
postmaster.
