There was a great deal of effort put into categorizing the runtime
parameters just a release or two back.  Both runtime.sgml and the
postgresql.conf sample file follow that categorization.

I'm not sure if Peter is saying he doesn't like the current
categorization, or that he doesn't believe in the idea at all.
But I don't think "one big list" will fly.
