For my part, I agree with Greg on this.  While we might want to provide
an option of "go ahead and go past checkpoint timeout if the server gets
too busy to keep up", I don't think it should be the default.

To be honest, I'm also not convinced that this approach is better than
the existing mechanism where the user can adjust checkpoint_timeout to
be higher if they're ok with recovery taking longer and I share Greg's
concern about this backoff potentially running away and causing
checkpoints which never complete or do so far outside the configured
