Hmm, I don't think there's a way for pg_standby to know which version of
PostgreSQL is calling it. Assuming there is, how would you want it to
behave? If you want no change in behavior in old releases, can't we just
leave it unfixed in back-branches? In fact, it seems more useful to not
detect the server version, so that if you do want the new behavior, you
can use a 8.4 pg_standby against a 8.3 server.
In back-branches, I think we need to decide between fixing this, at the
risk of breaking someone's script that is using "killall -QUIT
pg_standby" or similar to trigger failover, and leaving it as it is
knowing that immediate shutdown doesn't work on a standby server. I'm
not sure which is best.
