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.
