Or instead of letting users give the distribution, gather it 
automatically in some plan statistics catalog? I suspect in most 
applications queries stay the same for months and maybe years, so after 
some number of iterations it is possible to have decent call statistics 
/ parameter distributions. Maybe the the parameter value distribution 
could even be annotated with actual cached plans.
