I have no objection to moving the syslog section.  Any other opinions?

Not the way I read the docs; according to the docs:

password_encryption is whether or not the statement "ALTER USER joe_schmoe 
WITH PASSWORD 'xxxyyy'" is encrypted by default even if you don't use the 
"WITH ENCRYPTION" option.   And it is SET-able on each client connection, by 
regular users.  So it goes in "CLIENT CONNECTION SETTINGS".

"dynamic_library_path", while less obvious, is also SETable on each client 
connection.   I'd be happy to revise this if someone understands/uses this 
option and has a better idea where to put it.

Given that we're running out of time, I wasn't going to touch any of the 
comments in PostgreSQL.conf.sample.   Instead, I was going to leave the 
comments as-is, and post extensive comments on Techdocs before 7.4 beta.  
Then, in 7.5 or 8.0 we can re-comment .conf.
