I have to say as a user the parameters that are measured in postgres blocks
are really annoying and confusing. Really really annoying and confusing.
If someone's playing with this I would suggest they should work something like
dd parameters and take a unit. So you could specify effective_cache=500k or
effective_cache=1M or effective_cache=1G or whatever unit you wanted.
And this should be true for _all_ parameters that measure space. Consistency
makes it much much easier for people to learn a new system.
