No, you're missing the point.  If the postmaster goes down there's no
hope of automatic recovery from the situation.  If the replication
manager is separate, and it crashes, then the postmaster can kill all
the backends and auto-restart the whole thing.  This architecture has
served us very well for years and I think you're making a serious
mistake to change it.
