There are logging options that should allow you to collect the DDL and then
parse it.  You could then load it into a table.  But to answer your

you cannot today have triggers on system tables, and AFAIK nobody has
contributed a DDL-audit capability yet.  IMO the safest (i.e. least subject
to attack) way to do this would be to pull it out of the WAL on another
machine.  Given that we already have PITR, the data must be in there (maybe
not with a wallclock time, but with relative time).  It seems this is
something that could be added, if someone were to do the work.  I am not
aware that anyone is doing it at the moment, but I bet there are developers
who will work for sponsorship :)
