I don't think this really makes sense.  There's basically no argument
for having it in core other than "I'm too lazy to install a separate
package".  Unlike the case for autovacuum, there isn't anything an
in-core implementation could do that an external one doesn't do as well
or better.  So I'm not eager to take on additional maintenance burden
for such a thing.
