I'm not particularly set on this.. Why not create the file initially? > 2.

That I don't like.. You should be able to enable it and have things "work" without having to run ALTER SYSTEM first.. > One question here, if somebody just enables it without using ALTER > SYSTEM, should it throw any error on not finding auto file or just > ignore it?

Literally, the above 'include' in postgresql.conf. Would that only be dealt with as a parse-time thing, or should it be more like a GUC which could then be set through ALTER SYSTEM? Thanks, Stephen
