Well, correct solution is to implement tablespaces on which objects like 
databases, tables and indexes can be put. 

There was a long discussion on this and there was a tablespaces patch. It was 
agreed that tablespace as a set of directories would be a good point to start.

I have no idea what is the status of that effort right now. You can search the
