This falls under "make a list of recommended hosting companies" for your 
clients ... there are alot of companies out there that offer PostgreSQL 
hosting ... I don't know how flexible they are to adding modules, but I 
know that we ( definitely do, and I believe that 
Joshua's company ( does as well ... that was 
my big buy-into PostgreSQL back in '95, the fact that you could extend 
things through modules ... seems silly to provide PostgreSQL and not be 
willing to make use of that big feature ...
