Yeah, it seems to me that we are likely looking for a wait mode saying
to exit pg_ctl once Postgres is happily rejecting connections, because
that means that it is up and that it is sorting out something first
before accepting them. This would basically filter the states in the
control file that we find as acceptable if the connection test
continues complaining about PQPING_REJECT.
