I don't think it's clear, or intuitive for users. In SR, recovery is
*never* done, so smart shutdown never completes (even if the master is
shut down, when I tested it). This is particularly an important issue
when you consider that some/many service and init scripts only use smart
shutdown ... so we'll get a lot of "bug reports" of "posgresql does not
HOWEVER, I do believe this is an issue we could live with for 9.0 if
it's going to lead to a whole lot of additional debugging of SR. But if
it's an easy fix, it'll avoid a lot of complaints on pgsql-general.
