This and other quick hacks have been discussed before.  I think the
consensus has been to do nothing until someone gets around to writing
a general-purpose tablespace implementation.

FWIW, I don't think it would be an easy modification.  The low-level
file access code doesn't even know whether a given relation is an index
or not (... and I don't think it should know).  By the time you get done
implementing something reasonable at that level, you've got the
infrastructure you need for tablespaces.
