Somewhere along here we need to remember that "most new ideas are bad".

More seriously: the current state of affairs is that the
full-disjunction code exists as a pgfoundry project.  If it's indeed the
second greatest thing since sliced bread, then I think we could assume
that people will find it and use it from pgfoundry.  The question that's
on the table is whether it needs to be in contrib right now.  I have not
seen either a technical argument or popularity argument why it ought to
move into contrib.
