I've been working on an improved archive_command shell script that I

one of the options for how it can operate. It would be painful but
not impossible to convert a subset of that script to run under
Windows as well, at least enough to cover this particular issue.
A Perl script using the (standard) File::Copy module along with the
builtin function rename() should be moderately portable. It would to
be nice not to have to maintain two scripts.
It's also not very nice to require a Perl installation on Windows,
just for a replacement of Copy. Would a simple .bat script work?
With these avenues to be explored, can the pg_standby patch on the
CommitFest wiki be moved to the "Returned with Feedback" section?
Yes, I think we can conclude that we don't want this patch as it is.
Instead, we want a documentation patch that describes the problem,
mentioning that GNU cp is safe, or you can use the copy+rename trick.
