I as a user think that there should be a clear distinction of what is a
supported extension, and what is an unsupported extension .

With >100 projects on pgfoundry, 150 or so on gborg, it is hard to tell
which ones one can trust, and not everybody wants to beta-test on their
production data (especially for things that touch the core engine directly).
Maybe there should be a set of requirements fulfilling of which could get a
project a special 'blessing' from the Postgresql community?
