I just wanted to say that if someone wants to calculate the duration
of cancelled query (or other error'd query), you can do that by checking
the start time from pg_stat_activity and end time from log (using
log_line_prefix), but this is of course cumbersome.

So do you want to just print lock time for error'd statements, won't
it better to
do it for non-error'd statements as well or rather I feel it can be more useful
for non-error statements? Do we already have some easy way to get wait-time
for non-error statements?

Okay, I think then it's better to discuss after your initial analysis/
prototype, but I think you might need to add some infrastructure code
to make it possible, as lock database object (relation, tuple, ..) and lock
others (buffers, ..) have different locking strategy, so to get total wait time
for a statement due to different kind of locks you need to accumulate
different wait times.

Exactly, though this might not be directly related to this patch, but having
it would be useful.
