That'd work if we assume that /etc/pgsql can be owned by the postgres
user. Is that kosher per the various filesystem layout standards?
Seems to me that someone who thinks the executables should be root-owned
is likely to think the same of the config files.
Personally I think this would be a fine idea, I'm just worried that
we'll find packagers overriding the decision because "the Debian
standards don't allow you to do that" or whatever.
