Our shop has been using that since before pglesslog existed, and it
has continued to work across many major releases with no change to
source code because it doesn't get down to the level of looking at
the xlog records themselves, just the segment and page-level
structures.  I should probably put packaging that up as a proper
extension and posting it to PGXN as another thing on the list of
things I'll do when I stumble over that pot of round tuits at the
end of the rainbow.  Right now the source is on pgfoundry.  If
anybody wants to do anything with it before I find time, feel free.
