The main problem we're trying to fix here is people thinking that
something with "log" in the name contains discardable data.  Just
relocating the directory without renaming it won't improve that.

The relocation aspect was meant to address another problem, which
is making it easier to distinguish which parts of the tree should
be copied by tools like pg_basebackup.  But that's not what Michael
is asking for votes on.
