Seems like a fairly bad idea, since you'll then be unable to distinguish
the log outputs from multiple Postgres backends running concurrently.
However, it's surely doable if you remove LOG_PID from the openlog()

I see no bug, and I really don't understand your claim that it only
works for logging to a file.  syslog is syslog; where the syslog daemon
sends the log messages is not our concern.
