This comment in xlog.c needs an update. Two base backups started at
the same can generate a backup history file with the same offset, aka
same file name. I don't think that it matters much for this file
honestly. I think that this would become meaningful once such files
play a more important role, in which case having a unique identifier
would be way more interesting, but this day has IMO not come yet.
Other thoughts are welcome.

This has the smell of breakage waiting to happen, I think that we
should have just one single return point, which updates as well the
stop TLI at the end of the routine. This can just be a single
+ if (stoptli_p)
+ *stoptli_p = stoptli;
Not sure there is any point to move that around, on top of previous comment.

Some comments here:
2) s/may can/may/
5) "Backup has been taken from a standby" should be a single sentence.
This is beginning to shape.
