I guess I forgot to ask one other question. If the archived wal files are
streamed in one by one, would it still be safe to leave the pg_xlog directory
intact in the base backup? What would happen with the out of date log files?
Would they just stay in place or would the postmaster eventually recycle them
after the restore was complete?
