I'm amused by the idea of a TL;DR in parentheses at the very bottom of
the email, but maybe I'm just easily amused.
One idea would be to rename pg_resetxlog to pg_resetwal. I think
that's actually an improvement. The "x" in "xlog" is not a clear
abbreviation for "write-ahead", especially when we also use "x" in
other contexts to mean "transaction" - think "xid". Given our current
practices, we could justifiably rename pg_clog to pg_xlog -- after
all, that's where we log the status of the xacts. Ugh.
