Agreed, it feels natural to specify when a piece of WAL is acknowledged
in the standby.
Regarding the rest of the proposal, I would still prefer the UI
It ought to be the same amount of work to implement, and provides the
same feature set, but makes administration a bit easier by being able to
name the standbys. Also, I dislike the idea of having the standby
specify that it's a synchronous standby that the master has to wait for.
Behavior on the master should be configured on the master.
