I do think it'd be useful. I don't think 'inline' deserves inclusion and just complicates it more than necessary (my 2c at least). I'd just do them all as 'headline' and wrap at 80 chars. I will point out that this use of COMMENT is novel though, no? Comments are normally handled as "COMMENT ON blah IS 'whatever';" ALTER SYSTEM is certainly special but I'm not sure I like the idea of having some commands which support in-command COMMENT while others don't. > The rationale being that it's often the case one wants to document the > reason for a parameter being configured so, but there's no way of doing > this for settings in postgresql.auto.conf as they'll be wiped out if added > manually. <<Comments about postgresql.auto.conf redacted>> Thanks, Stephen
