Let me tell you how log_duration used to work.  You would turn on
log_pid, log_statement, and log_duration, and you would use pid to link
together the query and the duration.  That was kind of hard so we added
log_min_duration_statement that when set to zero prints all statements
and their durations, but it does it _after_ the query has run.  Now that
log_statement is not a boolean but rather has four possible values, it
isn't as clear that you turn on log_statement and log_duration at the
same time and have them synchronized.

Your issue brings up that the boolean API doesn't really work well, and
in fact highlights the fact that printing the duration as an independent
capability really made no sense at all.  Perhaps your approach is the
proper solution --- to link them together.
