The only reason this function doesn't exist yet is that I've been avoiding
this very question.
My personal favorite these days was get_session_characteristic(), which is
reasonably SQL-related and doesn't overload any confusing terms such as
parameter, variable, or option. However, considering the new
transaction-only settings, this name would be incorrect. Again, stealing
from SQL, an alternative could be current_characteristic(), which you
couldn't really argue against except on the ground that it's pretty weird.
