I thought the point was to make the extensibility features of PostgreSQL more 
usable so people would be more inclined to use them.  The assumption being 
that the problem is not finding things but the hesitation against 
using "unofficial" things.  Moving everything to the main blob of things 
seems to go against that idea.

So perhaps some market research is required to clarify the actual requirements 
and goals.
