Coming in late here, but the discussion around how to maintain the
auditing code seems very similar to how to handle the logical
replication of DDL commands.  First, have we looked into hooking
auditing into scanning logical replication contents, and second, how are
we handling the logical replication of DDL and could we use the same
approach for auditing?
