You mean pg_file_stat(text), right? That's what I see in your code.

Take a look at obj_description in include/catalog/pg_proc.h. That
should be a good example.

Ideally you want:
select filename, pg_file_stat(filename)
or something like that. However, I don't think you can have a function
call returning multiple values in the target list, and I can't figure
out how to pass an argument to the function if it is in the target list.

Is pg_logfile_rotate() not working? You mean pg_file_length().
Seems we should get this stat() idea working first. Adjusting catalog
entries once they are in CVS means a catalog bump for every catalog
