Yes, however Evgen was kind enough to grant me a BSD license for it
should I get it committed into PostgreSQL.  However, with the amount
of refactoring and community design decisions to be made, I doubt any
of the patch would be usable.

Yes, there are numerous bug reports from patched versions especially
on Gentoo.  As for the WITH support, it was written for PostgreSQL
7.2/7.3 and was a basic preliminary proof-of-concept.
