I think that's been addressed as of 83f2061dd.

My own concern here is that pg_stat_statements shared hashtable entries
(pgssEntry) are currently 200 bytes, if I counted correctly.  It's hard
to see how to implement this feature without adding COMPLETION_TAG_BUFSIZE
(64 bytes) to that, which is kind of a large percentage bump for a feature
request that AFAIR nobody else has ever made.

I suppose one way to avoid a large fixed-size field would be to store
the tag string out-of-line, similarly to what we do with the query text.
But then you've traded off a shared-memory-bloat worry for a performance
worry, ie what's the added overhead for dealing with another external
