I'm mystified by this whole discussion. For my 2c (and, yes, it's far too late to change most likely, but too bad) is that the entirety of postgresql.auto.conf should be generated, and generated with the catalog as the canonical source. No one should ever be modifying it directly and if they do then we act just as badly as if they go hand-modifying heap files and screw it up. We shouldn't have ever allowed postgresql.auto.conf to be the canonical source of anything. We didn't do that with pg_shadow back when we required that and I don't see any good reason to that now. Thanks, Stephen
