Me too --- committed and back-patched.

Right, done.

BTW, I realized that the reason I objected to your "option #4"
originally was that I thought you were proposing to make *every*
recovery start a new timeline.  It's not hard to imagine
sorcerer's-apprentice problems in a repeated crash and restart scenario.
But actually this is just starting one new timeline per (successful)
archive recovery, and each one of those will require manual intervention
to kick it off; so it's pretty much impossible to believe an
installation would ever create an untenable number of timelines.
