OK, at least we understand each other. Right now we don't have any
special "syntax error" log processing. We have errors logged through
log_min_error_statement, and mod/ddl through the new log_statement.
I can see a use case for having mod/ddl control of logging, and error
control of logging, but why would you want to see syntax error queries
but not other error queries? That's why I think log_min_error_statement
is sufficient. If we add syntax logging, wouldn't that conflict with
log_min_error_statement logging, because those are errors too. Maybe we
need to add a 'synax' mode to log_min_error_statement above error that
logs only syntax errors but not others.
