Agreed.  I just ran into the issue that getting data out of
pg_stat_replication on replication lag requires superuser privs, which
is annoying; without that, I can run Handyrep entirely as an
unprivileged user, but that one fact requires the handyrep database user
to be a superuser.

It would be really nice to be able to GRANT/REVOKE on some of these
special system views ...
