1) Can this be done in the V3 ConnectionFactoryImpl's sendStartupPacket by 
adding it to the params array?  If so that would save a network roundtrip 
per connection that used this option.

2) It doesn't have Datasource support.  Any option that can be set via the 
URL should also be settable on a Datasource.

3) In the past people have asked to be able to set other GUC parameters 
(search_path, optimizer hints, ...) and we've resisted because we didn't 
want to support some, but not all of these options.  If we're going to do 
this one, we should probably bite the bullet and do search_path as well 
because that's a pretty commonly requested item.
