Does this actually accomplish anything?  The checks that retail SETs
and RESETs work seem redundant with numerous existing tests.  The SELECT
from pg_settings is a seriously bad idea: it adds 100K of bloat to the
regression files, tests nothing of great interest, and will cause
regression test failures under a large variety of scenarios (eg, initdb
chose less-than-max shared memory settings, or we're doing "make
installcheck" against an installed server with even one nondefault
parameter setting).  Not to mention the extra maintenance effort of
updating this expected file anytime anyone changes guc.c at all,
even to the extent of fixing grammar in a GUC-variable description.
