Actually, if you're content with having tools obtain this info by
examining the WAL files, we shouldn't need to muck with the WAL naming
convention (which seems like it would be a horrid mess, anyway --- too
much outside code knows that).  Tools could get the segment size out of
XLogLongPageHeaderData.xlp_seg_size in the first page of the segment.
