I'm sorry, but it doesn't work that way. There's at least one serious 
bug in there still 
(http://archives.postgresql.org/message-id/4D302326.1000000@enterprisedb.com), 
and the multiple-concurrent-backups patch is pending review/commit. And 
there's one more feature me & Magnus would like to get in before the 
release: including all the WAL files required to restore from the backup 
in the backup tar itself - we'll see if that makes the release or not.

None of that should conflict seriously with the synch rep code, although 
it's hard to tell without seeing the patch. And even if it does, we'll 
just resolve the conflict, merge conflicts are not such a big deal.
