As far as I have skimmed the thread it's only talking about shortcoming
in case it requires a running server. Which -C doesn't.

I don't think there's any fundamental difference between some external
binary parsing & validating the config file and the postgres binary
doing it. There *is* the question of the utility being able to to
process options from multiple major releases, but I don't think that's a
particularly worthwhile goal here.
