The documentation has enough information at this level of detail that I
wouldn't object to adding commentary addressing the above should someone
take the time to write it.
Given that the location of pg_xlog is not "configurable" placing such
commentary in Server Configuration would be a no-go, however. At a quick
glance a new section under "Server Setup and Operation - Creating a
Database Cluster" would probably be a better home. It already discusses
Secondary File Systems and in many ways this is just an extension of that
