Going and working on it on your own doesn't seem like the proper
solution.  I don't see people objecting to adding it, but they want it
work, which I am sure you want too.  You have to show how it will work
and convince others of that, and then you have a higher chance it will
work, and be in the PostgreSQL codebase.
