It is once you consider error handling and catering to N combinations of
user requirements.

I think the notion that we should get rid of archive_command in favor of
something more hard-wired is sheer lunacy.  We have a nicely decoupled
arrangement for dealing with these issues now; why would we want to pull
them into the server?

Now, providing a more useful sample script is certainly reasonable.
