It's actually made it pretty high up on the list of desired features for 
some of the replication projects:  
http://wiki.postgresql.org/wiki/ClusterFeatures#Start.2Fstop_archiving_at_runtime

Since that is one of the easier items on that list to actually knock off 
(probably an order of magnitude so than the average feature there), it's 
completely feasible somebody will do so for 9.1.
