If we get some mechanism to write those partial WAL files, we might not
need the ability to identify the current WAL file, and because a new
function is going to require an initdb, I am thinking we can't get this
done until 8.2 anyway, so Simon, please come up with a plan to finish
the missing PITR pieces.  I am getting tired of trying to explain
workarounds to PITR users, especially when the workarounds are not easy.

We added PITR in 8.0, and we have made little improvement to it since
then, and its limitations are getting tiring.
