Well, what we know is that previous attempts to define replication hooks
to be added to the core have died for lack of interest.  Maybe Robert
can start a new discussion that will actually get somewhere; if so, more
power to him.  (Is the replica-hooks-discuss list still working?)  But
that is entirely orthogonal to what is proposed in this thread, which
is to upgrade the existing PITR support into a reasonably useful
replication feature.
