Immediate workaround is to use a script to encapsulate the actual
desired request.

OK, I would propose to extend the guc-file.l to include sufficient code
to allow the parsing of the conf files to be identical between the
postgresql.conf and the recovery.conf (it isn't the same yet).

There'll be care taken to ensure that the various options are not
settable in the wrong file.

Any requests for specific implementation details? I'll be looking to
remove code from xlog.c, if possible.

Implementation won't be immediate because of other current work.
