Hehe... I'll answer here, as it's a more opened forum it seems...

Schemas vs Extensions (or modules, we'll see): yes they are orthogonal 
concepts, but still, extensions should not pollute the public namespace, I 
(and some other) think.

So we're encouraging extension's authors to use their own schema where to put 
the extension stuff, with the drawback that user would have to remember about 
it and manage it along with their own schemas, which cause search_path issues.

I think your idea of splitting search_path into several components would help 
a lot here.
