Indeed, old habits :)

While the same is true for the hba-file, and ident-file bit, I wanted to
make this point for the postgresql-config-file record as a
whole. Hopefully that makes sense?

postgresql-configuration record, I wonder if I copied that from
somewhere else... anyway, I've fixed this now.
