At present, sure.  Was thinking a tool for command line changes of
postgresql.conf parameters would be useful, then thought about what such
a tool would be named.  "pg_cfg" was a thought, as was "pg_config".

However we already have a pg_config.  At present it's purpose is in the
realm of reporting the installation configuration of PostgreSQL.  Was
thinking that adding the ability to do more than "report" stuff, but
also to "make changes" isn't that bad an idea.


Regards and best wishes,
