Controlling --dbextras Using MonetDB(D)

Thanks for the suggestion.  I ended up adding a dbextra property to databases so that we can use the same mechanism of "monetdb set dbextra=…." to control.

It was a pretty simple patch.  If you compile the source, I'd be happy to get it to you.

I use wrapper shell in such case. May be useful for you.

$ mv /usr/bin/mserver5 /usr/bin/mserver5.bin

$ vim /usr/bin/mserver5

#!/usr/bin/env bash

exec /usr/bin/mserver5.bin --set gdk_vmtrim yes --set gdk_vm_maxsize 200000000000 --dbextra=/mnt/data/monetdb/extra $@
