Somehow I missed the 5-Apr patch that introduced this bogosity.
Next time you make a fundamental change in the behavior of a function,
how about updating its comment to match?
After studying it for a minute, I think that XLogArchiveCheckDone no
longer even has a clearly explainable purpose; it needs to be split
into two functions with two different behaviors. I plan to revert
XLogArchiveCheckDone to its previous behavior and introduce
XLogArchiveIsBusy (flipping the sense of the result) to use in
