Actually, my idea of sending a message to stderr saying we are using a
pre-configured file is so folks aren't surprised by the fact they can't
see any stderr anymore. But doesn't syslog have the same issue. Maybe
not, and that's why we need a message like:
"All standard output and standard error are going to postgresql.conf"
and send that to the processes standard error.

I don't understand this. I was thinking of close/reopen so log files
could be rotated.
