You're attitude to this makes me laugh, and cry. 

Removing pg_standby can be done and if you manage it well, I would be
happy. I laugh because it seems like you think I have some ego tied up
in it. It's hardly my finest hour of coding, especially since I've not
had the ability to improve it much before now.

Not missing *much*?! I cry because you're so blase about missing one or
two essential features that took years to put in place. Keeping
pg_standby at least guarantees we can do something about it when we
discover you didn't do a good enough job removing it.
