Hm. I agree with Fujii-san here, having the number of sync standbys
defined in a parameter that should have a list of names is a bit
confusing. I'd rather have a separate GUC, which brings us back to one
of the first patches that I came up with, and a couple of people,
including Josh were not happy with that because this did not support
real quorum. Perhaps the final answer would be really to get a set of
hooks, and a contrib module making use of that.
