I don't think it's already solved but I may be missing the point.  The
Veil shared library will be loaded by process_preload_libraries only
after the postgresql config file has been read.  I was assuming that at
this point it would be too late to specify custom GUCs.

Instead I want to load my own "veil.conf" file which would support the
same sort of syntax as postgresql.conf.

My proposal is to simply expose a new function processAddinConfigFile()
which would mimic ProcessConfigFile but would call a user-supplied
function to deal with each entry.  Obviously, this would be usable by
future add-ins and not just Veil.

If there is a better way to do this please tell me.
