Just the other day, I needed this patch yet again but had to go look up
the documentation instead.

I wonder if it would be a good idea to have a postgresql.conf.d
directory that postgresql.conf would include_dir by default.  These
could then live in there and all I would have had to do is uncomment the
values I wanted.

This patch doesn't do that, of course, but I could easily write a patch
that does.  Would that go over better with the -1ers?
