I've been playing with this, and I think the problem was that we
wanted a non-zero exit from the script if the start failed.  That's
trivial with pg_ctl -w but not running postgres directly.  I guess I
could run pg_ctl status in a loop after the start.
The reason is that we don't want certain other processes attempting to
start until and unless the database they use has started successfully.
