Great! This is really the feature which I really want.
Though I forgot why we missed this feature when
we had added the synchronous replication feature,
maybe it's worth reading the old discussion which
may suggest the potential problem of N sync standbys.

I just tested this feature with synchronous_standby_num = 2.
I started up only one synchronous standby and ran
the write transaction. Then the transaction was successfully
completed, i.e., it didn't wait for two standbys. Probably
this is a bug of the patch.

And, you forgot to add the line of synchronous_standby_num
to postgresql.conf.sample.
