I agree that basically archive_command should not overwrite an existing file. But if the size of existing file is less than 16MB, it should do that. Otherwise, that WAL file would be lost forever. I have another feature request; (5) Maybe not in the initial version, but eventually it might be nice to support calling posix_fadvise(POSIX_FADV_DONTNEED) after copying a WAL file.
