If Hot Standby were ready to be applied, I would be all in favor of
that, but in fact I don't believe that's the case.  There's been no
movement on Hot Standby since February, or at least nothing on the
mailing list and no changes to
http://git.postgresql.org/gitweb?p=simon.git;a=summary

My recollection is there was some discussion of whether Simon was even
prepared to put any more work into that patch or leave it others (in
particular, Heikki) to finish.  I think we had better resolve the
question of who is going to finish that patch and when they plan to do
it before we start planning our CommitFest schedule around it.
