Well I know it isn't an API per say, but one interesting tid bit as an example is that PLphp does not need the PostgreSQL source to compile. It only needs pgxs and the relevant headers etc...

Perhaps that is one way to go... All PLs use pgxs?

PL/Java does. No source needed. So yes, there's already a fairly good API that assists in the module build process. It does however still include all header files needed by the backend and thus, leaves the backend wide open (in a matter of speech). If a refactoring effort was to start later on, that would be a good place to start. I.e. divide headers into the ones available for external modules and the ones for internal backend use only.
