Such example would be useful for administrators who wants to manage
servers via SQL. :-)

I examined the example, and found some points which should be corrected:

- Some lines are over 80 columns.
- CREATE EXTENSION file_fdw also creates default FOREIGN DATA WRAPPER
file_fdw, so no need to create FOREIGN DATA WRAPPER explicitly.

BTW, filename option can be changed via SQL:

ALTER FOREIGN TABLE pglog OPTIONS ( SET filename '/path/to/new/file' );

I think it's worth to mention the way to switch to new log file after
log rotation.
