You would basically move the functions and their prototypes to cash.c
and cash.h, and then (instead of CREATE FUNCTION, etc.) add

You would then generate a diff in context format and post to the
-hackers list with that file as an attachment. Don't forget to add
it to the "CommitFest" page:
If you're going to do this, be sure to breeze through the developer's
