For given schema and server's locale, it's possible to have several FTS configurations, but the only one (with special flag enabled)

Isn't the real problem that only _one_ configuration per locale should
be marked as DEFAULT at any time, no matter what schema it is in?

I'm not sure I understand you correct (a bit complex :), but it's allowed
to have only _one_ DEFAULT configuration per schema/per locale. So,
visibility is defined by search_path for given locale.

Yes, but why is that needed? Wouldn't one DEFAULT configuration
per database be sufficient, and avoid the search_path problems?

Sorry if I'm being stupid - I just can't see what having a different
DEFAULT configuration per schema buys you.

It's what people asked for. Think about several sub-projects which share one
database, for example. They all may need different configurations.
It's not difficult to specify schema-qualified name of fts configuration,
but the problem arises when using "simple search", since there is no
way to specify fts name in CREATE INDEX command.
