What would people like done with this patch?  A sample section is:

! datestyle = 'iso, mdy'
! #timezone = {enviroment}        # actually, defaults to TZ environment setting
!                                 # set at initdb time
! australian_timezones = false
! extra_float_digits = 0          # min -15, max 2
! #client_encoding = {db encoding} # actually, defaults to database encoding
!                                 # common: UNICODE, SQL_ASCII

He has kept comments on the items where we can't determine a default.

One issue is that the postgresql.conf file only gets installed as part
of initdb so a shutdown/install/restart will replace the sample file,
but the server file will retain comments until an initdb.  This means
some beta people might go into 8.0.0 final with comments, and some will
