I've found myself wondering "where is my xlog" after running pg_switch_xlog() in 10.0.
Renaming pg_xlog to pg_wal created inconsistency between tools, function names and directory name on disk.
Should we also:
- rename pg_switch_xlog and friends to pg_switch_wal? - rename pg_recievexlog to pg_revievewal (and others in bin/)? - rename pg_xlogdump to pg_waldump? - if we do rename, should we keep aliases for functions and symlinks for tools? - anything else?
