I just helped another person yesterday who deleted their pg_xlog.
The biggest reason I've seen pg_xlog get deleted is not because it's
called pg_xlog, but because it's located someplace other than under
the data directory and referenced via a symlink. Renaming it might
still make it less likely for people to get trigger happy, though.
FWIW, I have seen a couple of times the same pattern as Craig:
"because it contains log in its name implies that removing it causes
"You can't fix stupid.", Ron White.
That said, I too have run into the "Oh it said, log... we thought it was
o.k. to delete."
