Yeah, definitely too much copy-paste going on.

The various start/stops were intended the ensure that PG actually starts
with the reset WAL. I see that these tests don't do them, though, so
perhaps that's not a good use of test time.

The pg_rewind tests work for my purposes but it seems worth preserving
the ones I wrote since there is no overlap.

I've attached a patch that integrates my tests with the current tests.
If you don't think they are worth adding then I'll just drop them from
my patchset.
