I have no real desire to implement this particular feature -- I simply saw an opportunity to cut my teeth on something easy.  I'd be happy to find something on the TODO list instead if this feature isn't really worthwhile.

First patches are always going to be small things.  If you try to tackle
something too large, chances are you'll never finish, despair utterly
and throw yourself off a nearby bridge.  Surely it's better to set
realistic goals, start small and build slowly from there.

It's not that difficult.  Just do a search on "git log
src/backend/postmaster/pgstat.c" for patches that add a new column
somewhere.
