Fixed in the attached version 6 of the patch.

I couldn't get to fix the documentation build tool chain on my main
workstation, so I had to revive a VM where I was lucky enough to find my
old setup was still working, all with shared directories, VPATH build
setup etc. Anyways.

I also expanded a little on the docs we did have, adding a section in
the main extension chapter and some example in the CREATE TEMPLATE FOR
EXTENSION reference page.

That version has no flaw that I'm aware of and implements the design we
reached after almost 2 years on the topic which is more complex than it
would appear at first sight. I hope that you will like the patch if not
the feature itself, as I have big plans for it in the near future.

Many thanks to all involved for helping with the design and the
reviewing, regards,
