See src/include/optimizer/cost.h. However, I am currently thinking of
taking Hiroshi's advice instead. Lowering RANDOM_PAGE_COST seems like
a bad idea --- if anything, we might want to raise it ;-)

The fudge factor in question is currently 0.5, and is used in two places
in src/backend/utils/adt/selfuncs.c (looks like lines 193 and 212 in 7.0
sources). I was thinking of dropping it to 0.25 or 0.1.
