Could that be fixed by moving the debugging routines into a separate

Its a major effort. Those function use elog(), stringinfo and lots of other
stuff... I am hesitant to start working on that.
On the other hand - I think an in-core xlogdump would be great and sensible
thing; but I can live with using my hacked up version that simply links to the

The stringinfo thing has long been an annoyance to me.  libpq has
PQExpBuffer which is the exact same thing.  I don't like that we have
two implementations of that in two different code bases, and you have
to remember to spell it right depending on where you are.  I'm not
sure exactly what the best way to fix that is, but it sure is a pain
in the neck.

Does it make sense to make some static library which can be
referred from both the backend and several client utilities,
including libpq? Or just a dynamic link be preferred?

Despite I do not have a clear idea right now, is it time to
start thinking of it?
