It does seem like a hack.  Couldn't this be implemented with a backend
switch instead?

Also, as a small practical matter, since this is a server-side program
(since it's being used as archive_command), we shouldn't put it into the
pg_basebackup directory, because that would blur the lines about what to
install where, in particular for the translations.
