Interesting idea. Do you achieve this solely with SQL queries? I would
like to see them.

I am just curios: do you have real problems with the standard behavior
(WAL files fill up your disk, the zones are so huge that you have
problems while inserting the new records)? Or it just cosmetic?

In our setup we use the default behavior. We have ~1 WAL file per minute
(16MB) which we just rsync to a backup server.
