I'm kind of against adding PL/sh to CVS, ever; and I believe Peter is
too, else he'd have done it already.

I know you will say that PL/sh is not any more dangerous than the
untrusted versions of plperl and pltcl, but there is a difference.
PL/sh has *no reason to exist* other than to implement
non-transaction-safe outside-the-database behavior; there is no safe
behavior for which it is the preferred tool.  I think making it easily
available is a bad idea, because people *will* shoot themselves in the
foot with it.
