That's essentially what the patch does. It's better because it does it correctly instead of requiring an admin to learn how to do it correctly. pg_ctl already has a -l option. I think it also makes a certain amount of sense to keep as much of the logging stuff in one place as possible:
pg_ctl -l foo.log start
Oh... I need log rotation...
pg_ctl -l foo.log -r 10M start
