You seem to completely argue besides my point that the replication path
is *more* robust by now?  And there's plenty scenarios where a faster
startup is quite crucial for performance. The difference between an
immediate shutdown + recovery without checkpoint to a fast shutdown can
be very large, and that matters a lot for faster postgres updates etc.
