I talked to a few people personally about this, and it seems there was a
misunderstanding.  I was not asking if pg_migrator should be in 9.0
beta1.  I was asking if we should think about putting it into a later
9.0 beta, like 9.0 beta3.  It would be another major 9.0 feature.

Because pg_migrator is an external project, it seemed best to do it
after beta1, while we are just waiting for bug reports, and not during
our main push to beta1.

FYI, here was the last discussion about having pg_migrator in /contrib
in December 2009:

	http://archives.postgresql.org/pgsql-hackers/2009-12/msg01787.php

and most of the limitations of pg_migrator are gone when migrating to
9.0, even from Postgres 8.3.  This could help beta testers move their
data to 9.0 as well.
