It would perhaps be useful to add optional --old-confdir and

It should work the same way the postmaster itself works: If the given
directory is not a data directory, look for the postgresql.conf file and
look there for the location of the data directory.

That would make sense to me (I actually tried setting the datadirs based on that assumption). It would require adding that feature to pg_upgrade and tweaking the docs for --XXX-datadir but would not require any new parameters.
