Yes, it should be 'statement'.

People didn't like the newlines changed because it makes large queries
hard to read (all on one line), and we had to double-escape backslashes,
meaning the logged query had different backslashing from the original.

Exactly.  log_min_duration_statement=0 delays the print of the statement
until it completes, but it prints them together.

I think we have to log both because perhaps they want the query printed
before it completes.

Good point.  Right now we do only:

        duration: ms; query: %s

This seems wrong because it isn't consistent with log_statement.  Glad
you pointed that out.  The only argument for printing one one is that
there isn't any value to printing the duration separately, because it
isn't printing before the query.  However, for consistency, I think you
are right we should print both.
