I'm trying to open the extension facilities (versions being the first of
them, think \dx) to application PL code, and to hosted environments
where you're not granted access to the server's file system.

I think I would agree that the use case is not existing if the target is
traditional in-house deployments where the sys admins are your
colleagues. I've been told that's a smaller and smaller part of the
database world though.
