I think a related problem is that the default log directory is called
"pg_log", which is very similar to those other two.  There is no quick
way to tell their meaning apart.

I would consider changing the default from "pg_log" to "log".  Then we'd
also be at the point where we can say, everything starting with "pg_" is
internal, don't touch it.
