You haven't exactly explained why this is a problem.  The proposed patch
would impede diagnosing of many other problems, so it's not going to get
committed without a thoroughly compelling rationale.

Hint: "I don't store my postmaster log securely" is not compelling.
We've been over that ground before; there are far too many reasons
why access to the postmaster log is a potential security hazard
to justify concluding that this particular one is worse.
