Kinda. It's much more like a freshmeat/sourceforge equivalent than a
CPAN equivalent. There's no standard package format, no dependency
or version handling, no possibility of automated installation.
It also has a mixture of postgresql modules, client-side code that can
access postgresql and even occasional projects that have nothing much
to do with postgresql.

Yup, that's one prerequisite for the rest of it, really. pgTap, which
now, was probably another.
