I think this module should be merged with the intarray module.  Having
two modules with very similar functionality would be confusing.
Perhaps.  I think it would be hard to remove intarray without breaking
things for existing users of it; even if the functionality remains under
another name.  And surely we don't want to generalize intarray while
keeping that same name.  So it might be hard to get to a clean solution.

Speaking of names, I can't avoid the feeling that it is a seriously bad
idea to name an extension the same thing as an existing core type.


+1. We have far too much experience already of this type of naming confusion.
