There is already about 3 million output plugins out there so I think we

And I am sure that 2ndQuadrant would be happy to add it to their version of
Postgres and maintain it themselves.


This doesn't seem like a good way to argue.

Sorry, that wasn't supposed to be negative. My point was that 2ndQuadrant has a distribution of Postgres that they support. If 2ndQuadrant wants the feature, they could add it to their own without burdening the wider community further. It provides 2ndQuadrant what they are arguing for, benefits 2ndQuadrant as it increases the visibility and opportunity of their distribution for wider use.

This is essentially what BigSQL and EDB are doing quite successfully. They add what the Core .Org community won't or doesn't (for whatever reason) and that makes their distribution attractive for their users.
