Yeah. I think it would also give people a wrong impression about when
the setting would take effect, because existing variants of SET are
immediate (for some value of immediate). And it would invite confusion
with the write-the-config-file patch, which is going to end up using
some syntax much like this one. I think we really want to use ALTER,
though I agree none of the alternatives are great.
Have you considered ALTER SYSTEM SET ... ? We'd talked about that in
the context of the other patch, but it seems to fit much more naturally
with this one. Or maybe ALTER GLOBAL SET or ALTER ALL SET.
