I'm a little bit confused by the way we're dragging standby_mode into
this conversation.  If you're using pg_standby, you can set
standby_mode=off and still have a standby.  If you're using a simple
recovery command that just copies files, you need to set
standby_mode=on if you don't want the standby to exit recovery and
promote.  But I think of standby_mode as meaning "should we use the
internal standby loop rather than depending on an external tool?"
rather than "should we become a standby?".

Maybe I'm confused.
