Yet anothre good reason *not* to be including PLs ... similar to why we 
moved libpq++ out of core ... I may be wrong, but I doubt that pl-j has 
the same feature set as pl-java, or vs versa ... so, what do we do? 
each time someone argues for a better widget, we swap out the old and 
include the new?  there is no guarantee that plPHP will be the only PHP 
based PL out there, any more then the other PLs, or language libraries ...

*If* something *requires* the physical postgresql source code to be 
available (not just the isntalled headers/libraries), like libpq does, 
then it makes sense to be part of the core distribution ... but, IMHO, the 
core distribution shouldn't be 'the means to validation' of an interface, 
since it unfairly negates work that someone else might be working on (ie. 
in this case, Dave's pl-j alternative to pl-java) ...
