Here's the latest extension's patch.

The only item with still some work to be done on it is the regression
tests support: we're not aiming to full coverage is my understanding,
and installing contribs goes a long way towards testing extensions. Do
we want more? If so, please detail what exactly.

What's in v17:

- 9700 lines of context diff

226 files changed, 4919 insertions(+), 326 deletions(-)

- extension.control.in cleanup

This file is no longer supported nor mentioned in the docs. The
version property of the extension.control file has to be managed
there directly, we no longer offer any support for using any existing
way to obtain it from the extension's Makefile.

- psql integration rework
