Hi Martijn!

Ah, right, now I know what you mean. This is necessary since non-root
users can't (or rather shouldn't) write into /etc. If there is a
desire for it, we can certainly discuss a way to manage clusters
entirely as an user (with some missing features like autostart at
boot, of course). But that should happen in the Debian BTS, not here.

Thanks :)

Not yet. TBH I didn't know about the pg_service.conf feature until
just recently (in Debian you can select a cluster with --cluster
version/name, that worked pretty well so far). Sounds interesting,
though. :) (Again, let's discuss that in the Debian BTS).

Thanks for the suggestions,
