Draft patch attached. However, there will be some more work to do. For 
one thing, pg_regress does not use pg_ctl to start its temp install 
postmaster, so either we'll need to train it the same way or get it to 
use pg_ctl. And then we'd need to change the regression makefile to use 
the option, based on an environment variable a bit like MAX_CONNEXCTIONS
