Maybe i wasn't too accurate in terms, because I newbie, but:
We can get information about xlog, using big amout of support function

pg_last_xlog_receive_location(), pg_last_xlog_replay_location(), ... etc)
they helps to get get useful information about xlog files and its content.
So, this patch extends this amount of functions.
It is useful additional tool for DBA (we can get replicationSlotMinLSN, so
why not in master), it can show us, if xlog replication or wal-sender is
working properly or indicate if replication on startup can get up to date
with master, or after long turnoff must be recovered from archive.
What pg_ls_dir('pg_xlog') couldn't do here if you need to know the
last WAL segment present on master?

Hi Michael,

It will not satisfy our purposes and our administrators for three reasons.
1) DBA set me task to get the oldest number that present in WAL, not last
2) Surely we can choose the oldest segment from list "pg_ls_dir('pg_xlog')" of segments and calculate the first LSN by hand, but it is not what we want to do manually. 3) Soon will be commitfest and our administrators wants to enhance their tool case for debug with usable features.

Thank you for comment.
