OK, one last review. I did't make any code changes, but I improved some
comments, added documentation and fixed a test.

01) Refactor dir/file permissions

* Small comment update, replace "such cases-" with "such cases --".

02) Allow group access on PGDATA

* Add data_directory_mode guc to "Preset Options" documentation.
* Add a section to the documentation that discusses changing the
permissions of an existing cluster.
* Improved comment on checkControlFile().
* Comment wordsmithing for SetDataDirectoryCreatePerm() and
* Fixed ordering of -g option in initdb documentation.
* Fixed a new test that was "broken" by 032429701e477. It was broken
before but the rmtrees added in 032429701e477 exposed the problem.

Attached are the v19 patches.
