Someone just reported a problem when they had created a new tablespace

caused by this as well, but this is mainly a confusing scenario for
people now.

As there isn't (as far as I know at least) any actual *point* in
creating a tablespace inside the main data directory, should we
perhaps disallow this in CREATE TABLESPACE? Or at least throw a
WARNING if one does it?

Does this apply when creating a tablespace in another tablespace too? If the problem is that pg_basebackup copies that data twice it sounds like it should.
