I agree.

That's what "contribute" means in my book. I'm getting mixed signals
about what the "community" wants. I certainly think if adding rules
involves modifying the postgres server code, that is far too high
a bar and no one will.

I'm not sure what you mean by "separate process". My original
pitch was to have this live in core or contrib, and no one wanted
it. If you don't want it in core, but people thinks its a good idea to
have (with review), what would you suggest?
