Well, from mine it doesn't mean that.  We kind of assume that "no answer
means yes"; but here what it really means is that nobody had time to
look at it and think about it, so it stalled (and so have many other
patches BTW).  But if you or others think that this patch belongs into
PGXN, it's good to have that opinion in an email, so that the author can
think about your perspective and agree or disagree with it.  Just by
expression that opinion, a thousand other hackers might vote +1 or -1 on
your proposal -- either way a clear sign.  Silence doesn't let us move
forward, and we punt the patch to the next CF and let inertia continue.
That's not good.
