But that begs the question of *why* it's a kiss of death?
For instance, in "perl land", having something in "CPAN" and not in
"perl core" is most certainly *not* a kiss of death? Why is it so
different for PostgreSQL?
Is it because the infrastructure behind CPAN is much better than that
Or is it because CPAN is better "vetted" and "organized" than pgfoundry?
Or is it because the projects that go into CPAN are better quality and
projects in pgroundry?
Or is it something else?
I'm pretty sure the answers to the above questions aren't all yes...
