Yes, but in cases we can supply the info with the proper GUC variable
enabled, why not do it?   I realize most people don't want it, but if
jdbc does, and it is something folks would use, maybe we should enable
it for the easy cases.

However, the number of cases where we would not be able to easily report
it may make the feature useless.
