"Extensions" would tie in nicely with its common use in the docs,  
especially wrt pgxs:

PostgreSQL can be extended by the user in many ways ...
PostgreSQL also accepts escape string constants, which are an  
extension to the SQL standard
To use the infrastructure for your extension ...
Here is an example that builds an extension module ...
They test standard SQL operations as well as the extended  
capabilities of PostgreSQL.

The pgxs docs do use "module" as well, but as previously mentioned  
module already has a particular meaning in the spec.
