Doesn't this apply to everything in /contrib ? I think hstore is such a small 
module that would fit nicely in contrib. For me it really sucks to have all 
users of our software download and compile it. Especially when they are used 
to just install binary rpms.

If people hate contrib so much why not just get rid of it forever.. Either it 
should embrace as much small contrib modules as possible - else it should 
disappear in my opinion.
