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 discussion. David J.
