I'm thinking of changing pg_start_backup and pg_stop_backup so that
they just check that wal_level >= 'archive', and changing pg_stop_backup
so that it doesn't wait for archiving when archive_mode is OFF.

This change is very simple and enables us to take a base backup for SR
even if archive_mode is OFF. Thought?
