Possibly, but as you say, it doesn't make that much difference in the
startup process. What is bothering me is the prospect of elog(FATAL)
in the postmaster. Code associated with GUC validity checking is likely
to get executed in the postmaster, which is why it should not throw
anything stronger than the normal GUC complaint levels. Even if the
patch as proposed is for code that could only be reached in the startup
process today, somebody might decide to rearrange it ...
