Great. Could I get someone to implement this now? The function that
needs it is PostmasterIsAlive() in src/backend/storage/ipc/pmsignal.c.
You can check whether it works by noting whether the stats processes
shut down when the postmaster goes away ...

The pgstat processes (and everything else launched by the postmaster)
now use write/read_backend_variables, so copying the handle there should
