I forgot to mention: the OS drive is purposefully made very slow - the
write cache is turned off and the FS is Ext3 with data=journal. Is then
still ok to put pg_xlog on it?

The reason: if the power cord is yanked, the OS _must_ boot back up in
good condition. If the DB is corrupted, whatever, nuke it then re-
initialize it. But the OS must survive act-of-god events.

No, there is no uninterruptible power supply. It sucks, but that's how
it is. I cannot change that.
