OK. But IIRC the Matthias implementation doesn't work in standalone
mode. And talking about the 'interval', I think it's too ugly make
select CURRENT_TIMESTAMP - pg_starttime();

Isn't it more simple do this?
select pg_uptime();

I think few people will use start_time and more people will use uptime
that's why I propose the 'uptime' function.

Talking abouts names, IMHO we need to go with uptime() and
start_time(). Why? That's because a system function and it's about
server. When we implement backend uptime, we can go with
connection_uptime() and connection_start_time().
