Okay, please find attached a rebased patch set. I have committed 0001
which adds version checks for the control file, and the renaming
part 0002. What remains now is the addition of the new options, and
--no-sync. The "return 1" stuff has been switched to exit(1) while on
it, and is part of 0003.

Now the set of patches is:
- 0001, add --enable and --disable. I have tweaked a bit the patch so
as "action" is replaced by "mode" which is more consistent with other
tools like pg_ctl. pg_indent was also complaining about one of the
new enum structures.
- 0002, add --no-sync.
