The attached patch is cleaned up and filed for the commit fest this next
Here's the full commit message via Mercurial. I will likely have a new
branch per version the patch since that's the closest thing to a rebase in
this version control system.

Restrict pg_rewind to whitelisted directories.
This is intended to be a minimum working version and in fact builds and
Note that tests for extra files have been changed to reflect new behavior
debugging informnation added in to output in case of failure.
The patch iterates through a series of set directories to synchronize them
only. This improves
predictability of the complete state of the system after a rewind.
One important outstanding question here is whether we need to ensure the
possibility of backing
up other files if they exist via an --include-path command line switch
(this would not be a glob).
In the thread discussing this patch, Michael Paquier has expressed concern
files created by extensions or other components not being copied. I could
add such a switch but
the patch is long enough, and it is unclear enough to the extent this is
needed at present, so
I am leaving it at the reviewer's discretion whether I should add this here
or submit a second
patch later to add the ability to add additional paths to the filemap.
Either way, it is worth noting that I expect to have a subsequent patch
either incorporated here or in a further submission that takes this and
adds the ability to include additional directories or files via a command
line flag. This will *not* be a shell glob but one directory or file per
invocation of the switch (similar to -t in pg_dump).
