The patch is partially rejected due to the pg_proc column changes from
leakproof, but I could apply manually.

I confirmed DROP EXTENSION is fixed now.  In turn, it seems to me
"requires" doesn't work.  My test ext2.control looks like:

comment = 'sample1'
default_version = '1.0'
requires = 'featZ'
relocatable = true

And simply this extension can be installed against cleanly-initialized
database.  I double-checked there's no entry for featz in

Also, I found that if control file has duplicate names in "provides",
the error is not friendly ("duplicate entry for pg_extension_feature",
or something).  This is same if "provides" has the extension name

I'll have a look more but give comments so far so that you can find
solutions to them soon.
