Here is a patch for that.
The internals are straightforward. Actually, we might want to refactor
this a bit later, unifying the AlterRoleSet and AlterDatabaseSet parse
nodes and the functions that do the work, because it's really all the same.
The SQL level interface is a bit odd. The existing facilities are
ALTER ROLE / SET
ALTER DATABASE / SET
ALTER ROLE / IN DATABASE / SET
Since the original design somehow considered roles to be superior to
databases in this regard, I added the global setting as ALTER ROLE ALL
SET ..., but that's obviously arbitrary. Most other variants would
probably be much more invasive, though.
