Technically, it's probably independent of whether we keep tsearch2 in
contrib.  I think (but haven't researched it) that it's more a matter
of whether we care to still support direct upgrades from pre-release-N
versions of tsearch2, for some N.  Politically though, I think it'll
be easier to make an aggressive decision in that regard if we are
tossing tsearch2 out of contrib.
