I do not think we should necessarily try to include every testing tool
in the core distribution.  What is important is that they be readily
available: easy to find, easy to use, documented, portable.  "Same
license as the PG core code" is not on that list.

An immediately relevant example is that the buildfarm server and client
code aren't in the core distribution, and AFAIR no one has suggested
that they need to be.
