I'd like to $Subject, on by default, with a switch to turn it off for
those really at the outer edges of performance. Some reasons include:

- It's broadly useful.
- Right now, the barrier for turning it on is quite high. In addition
to being non-core, which is already a pretty high barrier at a lot
of organizations, it requires a shared_preload_libraries setting,
which is pretty close to untenable in a lot of use cases.
- The overhead for most use cases is low compared to the benefit.

Before I go do the patch, I'd like to see whether there's anything
like a consensus as to the what and how of doing this.

What say?
