True.  Then maybe we should just all work together to make a
distribution suggestion to packagers of the major components and their
versions.  That way the packagers at least have a good idea of what we
believe is "good-to-go" with X version of PostgreSQL.

This works,to an extent ... but what packagers are you referring to? I know with FreeBSD, there is no "one packager for all things postgresql ...

Not to be too "business" about it, but a PostgreSQL community distribution should IMHO, be vendor neutral. If the installer were vendor-branding-free, I'd be game.

The big problem is that there is no 'single package format' out there, so any installer would be fairly difficult from that perspective, i think ... you'd have to have a 'pgrpm-installer' vs 'pgdeb-installer' vs 'pgpkg-installer' vs ... ?
