If it's supposed to be a major feature, then it should be in src/bin,
and fully integrated in the install, the documentation, etc.
If you want to put it in contrib because the standards are more lax
there, then by definition it's not really a major feature, it's just a
random feature that was snuck in. You can't have it both ways.
My personal feeling is that pg_migrator should be fully integrated, but
it's too late for that, obviously. Let's do it for 9.1.
I also think that the standards for contrib should not be so lax that a
completely new module can be added after beta. (This is mostly informed
by the feeling that contrib should go away entirely.)
