Can we wait until the alpha to decide that?  I haven't tested Heikki's
code to find out whether it works as he intends, and Simon seems to
think different.  If it's OK to wait until beta to fix the error
messages for pg_standby, then let's wait.

Anyway, if we fix the *core* bogus error messages for standby mode, that
will eliminate half of what's confusing and alarming people (and all of
it for those using SR).
