I can't say what would be better from a technical viewpoint. For me,
this is literally an academic problem people run into when they try
replication during the PostgreSQL course, using the archive_command
example from postgresql.conf. I guess if no one else has complained
yet, there's no reason to touch the back branches.

Is removing the "test ! -f" part and hence overwriting files in the
archive safe, i.e. are the files the same?
