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?
