Hi Peter,

Idea is really very good.

About the patch:
Patch looks good to me.
Applied cleanly on latest sources. make / make install / make check /
initdb everything works well.

Tested with few options and it is working well.

However, I think you need to add this in docs. Letting people know about
this environment variable to make use of that.
