The problem here is that there aren't really very many defined
defaults, or that these defaults vary (sometimes greatly) between the
different flavors of UNIX. For example, please tell me:

1) Where should PGDATA default to?
2) How do you want to handle logging output from the postmaster? There
are plenty of options...
3) Where should those log files get written?
4) For 1 and 3, will that support multiple major versions of
PostgreSQL? (ie, can I have 8.2.latest and 8.1.latest installed at the
same time)
5) How about multiple postmasters (on different ports)?

I think that the community would be well served by standardizing on
these things, at least for basic installations.
