I'm not sure it's a better example.  We considered doing that before,
and decided not to on the grounds that using MODULE_PATHNAME avoids
hard-wiring the name of the shared library into the SQL scripts.  Also,
IIRC, there are a couple of contrib modules where there's an actual
problem in doing it like that; though I'm unable to recall details as
I'm fighting a head cold at the moment.

My original intention when I started working with the extensions patch
had in fact been to do what you suggest above, but I was convinced not
to.  I don't think we should reverse that decision at the last minute.
