So, attached is a new patch addressing all the comments received. The new
version has the following changes:
- Print more verbosely stderr output in case of error in psql
- Add recovery test suite to SUBDIRS in src/test/Makefile
- Add strict and warnings to what is used in the new modules of this patch
- Manage node information using package/class and have
RecoveryTest use it. I have actually made PostgresNode bare-bone and simple
on purpose: one can initialize the node, append configuration parameters to
it and manage it through start/stop/restart (we may want to add reload and
promote actually if needed). However, more complex configuration is left to, which is in charge of appending the configuration
dedicated to streaming, archiving, etc though a set of routines working on
PostgresNode objects. I have also arrived at the conclusion that it is not
really worth adding a node status flag in PostgresNode because the port
number saved there is sufficient when doing free port lookup, and the list
of nodes used in a recovery test are saved in an array.
- Add new module RecursiveCopy to be used for base backups. This removes
the dependency with Archive::Tar. PostgresNode makes use of that when
initializing a node from a backup.
- Tests have been updated to use the PostgresNode objects instead of the
port number as identifier. That's more portable.

Hopefully I have missed nothing.
