Improve documentation around logging_collector and use of stderr.

In backup.sgml, point out that you need to be using the logging collector
if you want to log messages from a failing archive_command script.  (This
is an oversimplification, in that it will work without the collector as
long as you're not sending postmaster stderr to /dev/null; but it seems
like a good idea to encourage use of the collector to avoid problems
with multiple processes concurrently scribbling on one file.)

In config.sgml, do some wordsmithing of logging_collector discussion.

Per bug #6518 from Janning Vygen
