I am not fond of the timeline idea, especially for 7.5.  Let's get usage
cases submitted first.  I can imagine timelines as causing significant
confusion during restore, which is the last thing we want to do.

I think that judgment is exactly backward.  *Not* having timelines is
what will cause serious and possibly fatal mistakes during restore:
people will hand the wrong xlog files to restore and the software will
be unable to recognize the inconsistency.

We really need to get this right the first time.
