I missed something somehwere: wasn't the consensus a few weeks ago that
pg_ctl shouldn't be used for a system initscript?  Or did I black out
that day? :-)  I certainly have no problem using pg_ctl for this purpose
-- as I have been using pg_ctl to start postmaster all along (then why
am I not using it to stop -- don't answer that :-))......
