I think "promote" file should trigger the fast promotion, and the

might even break people's scripts for no good reason, if people are
creating the $PGDATA/promote file themselves without using pg_ctl.

current situation. I never understood why.
If we're going to change this in 9.3, it needs to happen *now*, as in
the next couple hours, because I plan to wrap rc1 this afternoon.
Please stop discussing and commit something.
FYI, Tom, I think Heikki is working on it now.
