And here are patches for that.
0001 renames everything that contains "xlog" in pg_proc.h to refer to "wal".
0002 renames programs whose names contains "xlog".
0003 renames the dtrace probes whose names contain "xlog".
0004 renames command line options which contain "xlog".
There are probably a few more things that could be done afterwards to
clean up other odds and ends, but I think this gets the vast bulk of
the user-visible references to xlog.
