A much simpler solution to the issue Stephen proposes is to have a way
to start up the server with all settings from ALTER SYSTEM SET disabled,
just like some software allows you to start it up in "safe mode".
See above for why I'm not thrilled wih this approach, unless it was set
up to happen automatically, but you couldn't simply ignore *all* the
ALTER SYSTEM SET parameters because then you might not be able to
connect in due to some ALTER SYSTEM SET parameter being necessary for
remote connectivity or authentication.
Yeah, this approach is a nonstarter because there's no reason to assume
that a postmaster started with default parameters will start successfully,
or will be connectable-to if it does start. Maybe there's another
postmaster hogging the default port, for instance.
