We already have one: it's called the 'service manager' :).

The binary installer, which is mostly already done, will install the
service and run initdb.  After that admins can use the usual methods to
start/stop the service. (net stop, etc.).  Same for initdb.

If the service isn't running you can invoke pg_ctl or the postmaster
directly, just like in unix.  If you didn't run the installer or elected
to install the service manually, this is done by invoking pg_ctl
register.

meh.  In the long run it's probably better just to edit the .conf file
directly.
