Evaluate use of GUC for postgis
|Reported by:||strk||Owned by:||pramsey|
Hooking on the Grand Unified Configuration of PostgreSQL would give us a few interesting advantages. Ticket #267 is an example of that, which in turn refers to other (unlinked) cases in which the need arised (arose?).
This ticket is here to stay. We'll see later if it's to be moved to 2.1 or Future as a milestone.
For now what I can tell after a brief research is that GUC is available in 8.4 and up to 9.1 requires an edit in postgresql.conf to allow SET syntax for "postgis.vars"
