TBH, I think we should reject this patch. Nobody cares about TPC-B
anymore, and they care even less about differences between one
sort-of-TPC-B test and another sort-of-TPC-B test. (As the lack
of response on this thread shows.) We don't need this kind of
baggage in pgbench; it's got too many "features" already.

I'm also highly dubious about labeling this script "standard TPC-B",
when it resolves only some of the reasons why our traditional script
is not really TPC-B. That's treading on being false advertising.

regards, tom lane
