That would seem to require making pg_regress depend on some XML library
or other, which is a dependency I'd rather not add.


Yeah, I think the way I set it out would work just fine for the intended purpose. XML, YAML, JSON et al are all well suited to tree structured data. But what we're describing here isn't tree structured. It is simply some named sets of postgresql.conf directives. As such, it would be best if it were as close as possible to actual postgresql.conf syntax.

And I am also reluctant to add an additional dependency onto the buildfarm script. (I wasn't actually thinking of doing this throught pg_regress, but I'm open to persuasion).
