.. or even foo_param (integer) (restart)

'restart' is a link describing the context. When I'm reading the manual
searching for a parameter description, sometimes it is not clear what is the
context; in this case, I need to query pg_settings to figure out what I have
to do to change that parameter. It would be fine if that information was
easily available.
