8.3 contains XPath support which should cover the issue that this patch 
addresses.  (Might wanna check.)  Since we're not going to put new 
features into earlier releases, and contrib modules are not necessarily 
source backward-compatible, I don't think this patch has a place in a 
future PostgreSQL release.
