Looks OK, but this isn't specific enough.

This confusion was one of the reasons I wrote contrib/pg_standby, at
least to illustrate the handling of the files.

Another confusion you may encounter is that if you copy the files as
soon as they are available the files may not yet be fully written and so
an incomplete file may be copied into place.

I'll add more to the docs for the 8.3 changes.
