ONLINE does match up with what we call the pg_start/stop_backup based
backups in the documentation, at least.  Also, it's intended to contrast
against pg_dump-based backups, not offline backups (which we don't
discuss at all in the docs that I can see).

Looking over the docs again a bit though, what about BACKUP_CONTROL,
following the title of 9.26.3?

Suggestions certainly welcome.

LOGFILE works for me.
