Hm, a search path for config files?  I could support that if it
satisfies the folks who object to specifying config directories
rather than file names.

One thing that would have to be thought about is whether to re-search
the path on each config file reload --- if you first find pg_hba.conf
in, say, the third directory on the path, should you pay attention if
one materializes in the second directory later?  Or do you keep going
back to the same well?  I can see arguments either way.
