I don't see a strong need for moving pgcrypto into core, and there's at
least one argument against it: if someone needs a crypto-free version of
postgres for use someplace with benighted laws, they would be screwed.

tsearch2 is functionality that definitely should be in core eventually,
but even Oleg still says it's not done.  Aside from the documentation
issue, it's not clear that we've got a stable API for it.
