This seems much the ugliest and most invasive part of the patch.  I'd
suggest doing something similar to what pg_proc.c is doing:

    /* We can get the original query text from the active portal (hack...) */
    Assert(ActivePortal && ActivePortal->status == PORTAL_ACTIVE);
    queryText = ActivePortal->sourceText;

The usefulness of this seems pretty dubious.  You aren't going to have a
bunch of random bits of code sharing a connection; it's going to be a
single application that probably knows perfectly well exactly which
queries it needs prepared.  So I don't think the stats will pay for

It would have been better to put the function that needs this access
into prepare.c.  There is no point in trying to hide a data structure
inside a module if we then turn around and expose the data structure
to the world...
