I think it's a question of, is this solution one that we want to keep
for a while, or do we want a different implementation of AVD, perhaps
something built into the backend that could take advantage of the FSM
also.

I would like to see it in bin, but thats just me :-)  I would prefer
contrib over gborg.

What do people think of using pg_ctl to start and stop the AVD? Perhaps
an new "with AVD" option when starting the postmaster.

There are missing features still, but I will continue to work on this
and fill in the gaps if people think it's worth it.
