We've just spent a whole lot of blood and sweat on making the extension
mechanism work nicely.  I don't understand this urge to not use it.

ATM I'm not sure it's even a good idea to push pgsql_fdw into contrib.
Once we do that its release schedule will get locked to core's ---
wouldn't it be better to keep flexibility for now, while it's in such
active development?
