Attached two draft patches. The one makes pg_stat_replication.sync
priority report NULL if in quorum-based sync replication. To prevent
extra change I don't change so far the code of setting standby
priority. The another one improves the comment and documentation. If
there is more thing what we need to mention in documentation please
give me feedback.
