The first counter example I thought of is log_checkpoints which looks
LOG: checkpoint complete: wrote 133795 buffers (25.5%); 0 transaction
log file(s) added, 0 removed, 98 recycled; write=112.281 s, sync=108.809
s, total=221.166 s

I don't know if it's practical at this point, but it might be helpful
for the truly machine-targeted output formats to include specifically
BLCKSZ somewhere in their header--just so there's a universal way to
interpret the output even if the user tuned that.
