Not true. If there are many concurrent users running concurrent
queries against parallel databases, such as some test systems I have
that contain many databases for many test environments, such a setting
wouldn't make sense. If a DBA sets it to lower than shared_buffers,
that setting has to be honored.
Rather, I'd propose the default setting should be "-1" or something
"default" and "automagic" that works most of the time (but not all).
