Here's the referenced Linus story. It's an interesting look into FOSS project administration at scale: developers.slashdot.org/story/12/12/29/018234/…

comment How can I force a merge of all WAL files in pg_xlog back into my base “data” directory?
Are you saying that when I issue the stop command to the database server, all of the WALs in the pg_xlog directory get applied to the base data set? If so, why aren't they then deleted? The same is true for CHECKPOINT commands; I can issue one, and the WALs contained in pg_xlog shift by one sometimes (the oldest vanishes and a new one is created), but the volume stays the same, as per checkpoint_segments.
