Track the configuration load time
|Reported by:||adamk||Owned by:||adamk|
This is a reminder by and for Adam K about something neat he saw in the Postgres 8.4 release.
You won't ever have to guess if the postgresql.conf file has been modified since you restarted the server: compare its modification time against the result of pg_conf_load_time().
Once Config 3.0 lands, implement an equivalent of this in the configuration system.
Because of Padre::Config->apply, it should be possible to implement hot external updates of configuration files.
That is, if you have a Personal configuration, or a Project configuration, and you change the file via an svn update or just hand-editing, this should make it possible to detect the updated configuration and ->apply the changes to the actively running Padre.
