I've found myself wondering "where is my xlog" after running
pg_switch_xlog() in 10.0.

Renaming pg_xlog to pg_wal created inconsistency between tools, function
names and directory name on disk.

Should we also:

- rename pg_switch_xlog and friends to pg_switch_wal?
- rename pg_recievexlog to pg_revievewal (and others in bin/)?
- rename pg_xlogdump to pg_waldump?
- if we do rename, should we keep aliases for functions and symlinks for
- anything else?
