The only thing that's slightly bogus about that is that if you were doing an archive recovery, you'd have to edit the main postgresql.conf with one-shot parameters for that particular recovery (and then delete them again, or leave them in place, confusing the next guy). But perhaps that's worth the overall simplification. -- Sent via pgsql-hackers mailing list (email@example.com) To make changes to your subscription: http://www.postgresql.org/mailpref/pgsql-hackers
