This is going to have to be optional, isn't it?  I know that I'm
frequently running pg_ctlcluster myself, and aren't we going to need to

I'd be pretty disappointed if we lost the logging to
/var/log/postgresql that we have today for the startup..  Perhaps that
can be run through systemd/syslog, or we can use 'tee' or similar to do
