There was/is a TODO item:

Note this says "during initdb", which is a whole different ballgame.
We could certainly add a "symlink pg_xlog to foo" switch to initdb,
but again, just how much functionality is that really adding?
Not a whole lot. (I'll not stand in the way if someone wants to write
and document such a switch in the next ten days; but really the bang
for buck ratio seems low, compared to working on things that you can't
do nohow in current PG.)
I think its less useful at initdb time....

We probably have time for a change, but robustness makes me think not
to, especially as its gloss, not feature.

So, buried it is then.
