Actually, I'd vote for ripping out that "feature" altogether.
That file has nothing whatever to recommend it, compared to editing
postgresql.conf --- it's no easier certainly, and you'll never be
able to change any options it sets without a postmaster restart.
We've mostly deprecated setting options on the postmaster command
line already, so why do we need another obscure way to do that?
