I just tried creating a symbolic link to the pg_log directory and
flagging the existing logs within it to 640. As a member of the
group I was able to list and view the contents of log files through
the symbolic link, even though I didn't have any authority to the
PostgreSQL data directory.
That seems potentially useful to me.
