One of possible workaround with archive and streaming was to use pg_receivexlog 
from standby to copy/save WALs to archive. but with pg_receivexlog was also 
issue with fsync.

[ master ] -- streaming --> [ standby ] -- pg_receivexlog --> [ /archive ]

In that case archive is always in pre standby state and it could be better than 
had archive broken on promote.
