Hm. Probably because you think these users will have direct file access? Which in turn means they can edit *.conf directly too and don't need an interface for that either.

it would be something done in C or another application language.  Aren't
the file names already ordered based on their file names, given the
default pattern, postgresql-%Y-%m-%d_%H%M%S.log?

The issue is _filtering_, not ordering. Since the log directory might be directed to a different location, non-pgsql logfiles might be there too. You'd probably won't expect to retrieve these files over a pgsql connection.
