Ironically, that was the name I originally used.  I'll update the patch.

The main (and only) point of this patch is to avoid polling.  Since 
"in_recovery" is marked as GUC_REPORT, it will be sent to the client 
asynchronously in a ParamStatus message.  Other GUC_REPORT variables set 
a good precedent.

My argument is that Hot Standby is a major mode of operation, which 
significantly alters how connected clients work with the server, and 
this bit of knowledge is no less important than the other GUC_REPORT
