I just tried the ~/.pg_service.conf patch and it does everything I'd
expect from it. It even improves the documentation to include a
services file example for which I had been looking several times
There's not much I have to add, maybe the documentation could add a
pointer to what keywords are recognized:
| The file uses an "INI file" format where the section name is the
| service name and the parameters are connection parameters.
... (see Section 30.1 for a list).
Independently for what this patch changes, error reporting could be
more detailed, currently "syntax error in service file \"%s\", line
%d" is reported for "no = in line" and "keyword X is unknown". The
latter case deserves a different message, maybe like "keyword \"%s\"
is invalid in service file \"%s\", line %d".
Even without the proposed changed, I'd very much appreciate the patch
