I've created a new view named pg_stat_statements_aux. But for now both
views are using the same function pg_stat_statements which returns all
fields. It seems reasonable to me - if sampling solution will need all
values it can query the function.

Agreed, renamed to auxiliary term.

But it seems "stats_reset" term is not quite correct in this case. The
"stats_since" field holds the timestamp of hashtable entry, but not the
reset time. The same applies to aux_stats_since - for new statement it
holds its entry time, but in case of reset it will hold the reset time.

"stats_reset" name seems a little bit confusing to me.
