This patch will be included in next release of PgPro EE.
Concerning next commit fest - I am not sure.
At previous commitfest it was returned with feedback that it "has
received no review or comments since last May".
May be your review will help to change this situation.

I agree it may be more useful to limit amount of memory used by prepare
queries, rather than number of prepared statements.
But it is just more difficult to calculate and maintain (I am not sure
that just looking at CacheMemoryContext is enough for it).
Also, if working set of queries (frequently repeated queries) doesn't
fir in memory, then autoprepare will be almost useless (because with
high probability
prepared query will be thrown away from the cache before it can be
reused). So limiting queries from "application side" seems to be more

I will check it.
