That was the intent of my pg_archiveto suggestion. I'll amend it
(based on other comments) to allow for a URL as an alternative way
to specify the directory. So your archive_command might be:

'pg_archiveto /var/pgsql/backup/wal/ %p %f'

or:

'pg_archiveto http://backup-server/mydbserver/wal/ %p %f'

or maybe:

'pg_archiveto /mnt/someremotedirectory/ %p %f'
