include/config.h:#define DEADLOCK_CHECK_TIMER 1

This only has second resolution. I changed it to milliseconds for my
configuration clean-up (details coming soon), but I'm not sure if that's
worth a lot.

The logic behind this is in backend/storage/lmgr/proc.c.

What datatypes besides text'ish and binary data'ish do you want to toast?
SQL(3) only defines CLOB and BLOB, so they might be thinking along my
lines. I mean surely having toastable polygons and numerics has some
theoretical value but is it worth bothering?
