OK, that's three votes in favor of removing tsearch2 (from core,
anyone who wants it can maintain a copy elsewhere).  Starting a new
thread to make sure we collect all the relevant votes, but I really,
really think it's past time for this to go away.  The last actual
change to tsearch2 which wasn't part of a wider cleanup was
3ca7eddbb7c4803729d385a0c9535d8a972ee03f in January 2009, so it's been
7 years since there's been any real work done on this -- and the
release where we brought tsearch into core is now EOL, plus three more
releases besides.
