It's intended as a demonstration of stuff you could do with background
workers.  Perhaps that begs the question of why Alvaro included it in
the set of things that got moved from contrib to src/test/modules, but
I'm still of the opinion that we should build everything in
src/test/modules when the user does 'make world', whether it has tests
defined or not.
