Another point here is that we are running low on single-letter backslash
command names in psql. I'm not sure that "SET SEARCH_PATH" is so useful
as to justify using up one of the ones that are left.
ISTM there was some discussion awhile back about user-definable typing
shortcuts in psql. I don't recall any details, but being able to set
up "SET SEARCH_PATH" as a user-definable shortcut if it's useful to you
would eliminate the question about whether it's useful to everyone.
