Yeah, but which side ;-) ?  I think the pg-general population would have
a very much higher fraction of people who have no user-defined functions
and therefore would see no value in \df not showing system functions.

If we put in a config variable, that at least lowers the stakes for the
losing side in the argument about what the default should be.  Without
that, I think there will be some serious flamewars ahead...
