I think the solution to that problem is to provide a default archive
command that just does the very simple thing, namely moving the WAL file
to some place given as parameter.  Some “local” mount point.

Allow me to insist here, I don't think a sample is what we need to be
providing our users.  I think they deserve a default production grade
implementation of a very simple archive command.
