Admittedly, the above is a slightly different problem, but I think it
all points in the direction of needing more automation and more ease
of use.

And let me also note that the difficulty of getting this all exactly
right is one of the things that causes people to come up with creative
solutions like this:


That's why we need to put it in a box, tie a bow around it, and put up
a big sign that says "do not look into laser with remaining eye".

That's exactly what pg_basebackup does. Once you move into more complicated scenarios with multiple standbys and WAL archiving, it's inevitably going to be more complicated to set up.

That doesn't mean that we can't make it easier - we can and we should - but I don't think the common complaint that replication is hard to set up is true anymore.
