The current docs for autovacuum_max_workers suggest it should be modifiable
with a reload, unless I'm reading in awfully silly ways this morning (which
isn't entirely out of the question). Anyway, in the 8.3.7 and 8.5devel
instances I've tried, autovacuum_max_workers can only be set at server start.
I propose this:

diff --git a/doc/src/sgml/config.sgml b/doc/src/sgml/config.sgml
index 7c82835..26a8ddf 100644
--- a/doc/src/sgml/config.sgml
+++ b/doc/src/sgml/config.sgml

Specifies the maximum number of autovacuum processes (other than the
autovacuum launcher) which may be running at any one time. The default
- is three. This parameter can only be set in
- the <filename>postgresql.conf</> file or on the server command line.
+ is three. This parameter can only be set at server start.
