I believe we'd agreed that the necessary infrastructure for this is
just a function to tell the current WAL segment name and offset.

I see no need for that to be "automatic".  I'd vote for a simple
function pg_finish_wal_segment() or something like that, which you
call just after pg_stop_backup() if you want this behavior.  Trying
to tie it into pg_stop_backup() will only make things more complicated
and less flexible.
