I always thought the best place to test is with a copy of your real
data... I'd certainly be willing to flip a ./configure switch or GUC to
test it myself. I'm sure others would too. But it's probably easy enough
to just hack the configure script myself. Or is this one of those things
that fraught with dependency issues?
