I like that a lot - we should've done taht years ago :-)

For consistency, either both datname and usename should refer to their
respective oid, or none of them.

application_name  should probably have a link to the libpq
documentation for said parameter.

"field is not set" should probably be "field is NULL"

"Boolean, if the query is waiting because of a block / lock" reads
really strange to me. "Boolean indicating if" would be a good start,
but I'm not sure what you're trying to say with "block / lock" at all?

The way the list of states is built up looks really strange. I think
it should be built out of <variablelist> like other such places
instead - but I admit to not having checked what that actually looks
like in the output.

The use of single quotes in the descriptions, things like "This is the
'state' of" seems wrong. If we should use anything, it should be
double quotes, but why do we need double quotes around that? And the
reference to "think time" is just strange, IMO.

In some other cases, the single quotes should probably be replaced
with <literal>.

NB: should probably be <note>.

Very useful.

Shouldn't we do this consistently if we do it? It's change in
pg_stat_get_activity() but not pg_stat_get_wal_senders()? I think we
either change in both functions, or none of them

Also, I think state=-1 needs a symbolic value. STATE_UNDEFINED or
something like that.

There's also a lot of random trailing whitespace in the patch - "git
diff" (which you seem to be using already, that's why I mention it)
will happily alert you about that - they should be removed. Or the
committer can clean that up of course, but it makes for less work ;)

The code is starting to look really good,  but I think the docs
definitely need another round of work.
