Is this possible today in a stable and robust way? If so, can we
document the procedure? If not, should we alter the documentation so
it's not misleading? I've had several people ask me where to enable
the "hot standby" feature, not realizing that PostgreSQL only has
some of the raw materials that could be used to architect such a thing.
