That makes perfect sense. Although that req is usually a flag that can 
be turned on/off and
the req is used to create the php-pgsql package. Although it sources 
from PHP of course.

O.k. I see the other side of the argument thanks to Tom and Andrew, I 
don't agree with
it (in terms of being an issue) but at least I understand it.

Besides people could always choose to NOT package with plPHP regardless 
if it was in core.

It would however be there for people who compile from a tar ball or for 
people who don't
use PHP but do use plPHP (for whatever reason).
