I have took a look at your description. That is totally different from
what I thought. Statement replication and/or load balancing middle
ware need to know SQL statement is SELECT or others. If it is a (read
only) SELECT, it can be routed to standby node of Streaming
replication clusters for example. For this purpose, such a middle ware
ought to be able to parse SQL. If PostgreSQL provide its raw parser as
a C library, it will be very usefull for such middle ware since they
do not need to re-implement their own SQL parser (as pgpool-II already

Pgpool-II is capable to re-sync a DB node while pgpool-II and
PostgreSQL are running. It is called "on line recovery". This is done
by taking a base backup and WAL archiving. After successfull
completeion of on line backup, it does not need continuous WAL
archiving anymore. Therefore what I need is, set archive_mode to off
without restarting PostgreSQL.
