I'm not convinced of that but I agree that we can do better and would
like to see a solution which actually makes progress in that regard.  I
don't feel that this does that- indeed, it hardly changes the actual
packaging effort required of extension authors at all.

I'll repeat my requirement: the same extension must be installable the old way and the new way. I've lost track which of the ideas being discussed satisfy that requirement, but I object to any that doesn't.

Considering that, I don't see how any if this is going to reduce the overhead required for packaging. An extension author will write the extension exactly the same way he does today. Perhaps you meant the overhead of installing an extension, ie. the work that the DBA does, not the work that the extension author does?
