I think the simplest and most generic solution would be to put the OS
and pg_xlog on a RAID 1 pair and dedicate the rest of the drives to
RAID 5 or RAID 1+0 (striped set of mirrors) array.

Depending on the nature of your work, you may get better performance
by placing individual tables/indices on dedicated spindles for
parallel access.
