Why is that useful?

For knowing how long checkpoints are taking. If they are taking too
long you may need to adjust your bgwriter settings, and it is a
serious drag to parse postgresql logs for this info.

Even if this were true, surely the answer is to improve the logging.

Has this feature been discussed on -hackers? I don't recall it (and my memory has plenty of holes in it), but I'm sure that after attending my talk last Sunday Theo hasn't sent in a patch for an undiscussed feature ;-)
