I think that it's OK to add that as TODO item. There might be
the system that the speed of WAL archiving is slower than
that of WAL generation, at peak time. The DBA of that system
might want to monitor the size of archive queue.

We can implement this by just counting the files with .ready
extension in pg_xlog/archive_status directory. Or we can also
implement that by adding new counter field in pg_stat_archiver
structure, incrementing it whenever creating .ready file, and
decrementing it whenever changing .ready to .done.
