I'm undecided on whether log files should be copied, but in case we
decide not to, it needs to be considered whether we at least recreate
the pg_log directory on the standby.  Otherwise weird things will happen
when you start the standby, and it would introduce an extra fixup step
to sort that out.

Extra credit for doing something useful when pg_log is a symlink.

I fear, however, that if you end up implementing all that logic, it
would become too much special magic.
