OK, I took some time to write a patch for that as attached, added in the next CF here: https://commitfest.postgresql.org/8/447/ I am fine switching to an SRF depending on other opinions of people here, it just seems like an overkill knowing the uniqueness of the WAL sender in a server. I have finished with a function and a system view, this came up more in line with the existing things like pg_stat_archiver, and this makes as well the documentation clearer, at least that was my feeling when hacking that.
