Hmm ... you're right, it does, so the current default is actually a
value that you can't get into the variable by a normal SET.
Interesting.  (We are doing the "smart" stuff during SET not SHOW,
it appears.)

regression=# show search_path ;
(1 row)

regression=# set search_path = '$user',public;
regression=# show search_path ;
 "$user", public
(1 row)

Given that, I agree with changing the default string.  It should look
the same as a value that you could actually assign ...
