This patch makes, in its source code comments and error messages, overly 
enthusiastic references to the fact that a parameter setting was 
supposedly "commented".  The only information that is really available, 
however, is that the parameter setting disappeared from the 
configuration file, and we should not be making other claims.

Another issue that strikes me is that the GUC code apparently makes 
mixed used of palloc and guc_malloc, and this patch continues that.  
I'm not sure if this is really well thought out.
