I agree that we don't want to get rid of async commit, but, for the
archive, I wouldn't recommend using it unless you specifically understand
and accept that trade-off, so I wouldn't lump it into a "PostgreSQL
performance 101" group- that's increasing work_mem, shared_buffers, WAL
size, etc.  Accepting that you're going to lose *committed* transactions
on a crash requires careful thought and consideration of what you're
going to do when that happens, not the other way around.

Thanks!
