The big feature I am being pestered for is :

- hot backup that (subsequent) logs can be applied to during recovery

The patch in its current form provides this - which is excellent.

However, some "easyness" enhancements could be in order :

e.g :

- automatically archiving logs after a hot backup to <somewhere>
- some sort of ability to detect if the archived log sequence is 
"broken" anywhere after the lastest hot backup.


I would like to see PITR as straightforward as possible to setup. 
Backups that are actually unrestorable - because the Dba didn't 
understand the product's convoluted "design" - are still way too 
frequent AFAICS.

cheers

Mark
