Incidently, this reminds me of something I proposed late last year
relating to easy installation of modules:

http://archives.postgresql.org/pgsql-hackers/2005-09/msg00476.php

To idea being that for most modules you only need a script to "install"
it (declare functions and types). For these modules you can actually
embed the script into the library itself. Thus, the installer only
needs to be pointed to the shared object and it's done.

If this installer tracked installed modules, you could use pg_depends
to track what installed what and thus uninstall stuff afterwards. It
might help pg_dump upgrades across versions.

Anyway, it was just a thought and it didn't generate any comments at
the time.

Have a nice day,
