Hi Tom,

My guess is that it would be possible to insert a check to see if the
installed Postmaster was started with -i, and then choose between Unix
domain sockets or TCP.  BUT, whether trying to explain this in the
installation document to the novice user who is setting up PostgreSQL
for about the 1st, 2nd or 3rd time is something to think about...


Regards and best wishes,

Justin Clift
