I would have liked that too, but systemd is completely unfriendly to
custom actions of that sort.  The new dispensation is that you have
to do "postgresql-setup initdb" or "postgresql-setup upgrade".
This is documented in
	/usr/share/doc/postgresql-*/README.rpm-dist
and in the F16 release notes at
	https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Docs/Beats/DatabaseServers
I'm willing to document it somewhere else if you have a better idea.

(This isn't new with 9.1, btw --- the last version or so of 9.0
for F16 was the same, since we switched over to native systemd
files.)
