I am marking this patch as returned with feedback for now, not all the
issues have been fixed yet, and there are still no docs (the
conclusion being that people would like to have this stuff, right?).
Feel free to move it to the next CF should a new version be written.

I think we still don't have a real use case for this feature, and a
couple of points against it.

I have a use-case for this feature, at part of it containerized PostgreSQL. Right now, there is certain diagnostic information (like timeline) which is exposed ONLY in pg_controldata. That leaves no reasonable way to expose this information in an API.

(and yes, we have a bigger issue with stuff which is only in pg_log, but one thing at a time)
