Let me illustrate.  To turn off archiving you have to change:

        #archive_command = ''
        archive_command = 'cp %p /mnt/server/archivedir/%f'

        archive_command = ''
        #archive_command = 'cp %p /mnt/server/archivedir/%f'

and if you comment both or neither, you have problems.

With a boolean it would be:

        archive_mode = on
        archive_command = 'cp %p /mnt/server/archivedir/%f'

        archive_mode = off
        archive_command = 'cp %p /mnt/server/archivedir/%f'

Now, if you say people will rarely turn archiving on/off, then one
parameter seems to make more sense.
