Assuming only super users/sysadmins would have the ability to change things in the config file, wouldn't they be more likely to just do it on the server and edit the .conf (which among other things, keeps it tidy and orderly).
The use is the ability to manage dozens, or hundreds, of PostgreSQL
servers via Port 5432. It would also make writing an auto-configurator
I agree that there's not much benefit if you're only managing a single
PostgreSQL server. There's a lot of benefit for those of us who have to
manage a lot of them though.
