Once stuff is in contrib, it tends to stay there.  The above argument
is completely disingenuous --- we'd have to have the same argument
again at the end of the 8.3 cycle, only then we'd already have expended
a development cycle's worth of maintenance work on a quite-large module.

There is quite a lot of stuff in contrib that the core committee
wouldn't accept nowadays ... it got in when there wasn't any alternative
such as pgfoundry.  These days I think something has to be pretty
clearly useful to a wide variety of people before we'll accept it into
contrib, and I'm not seeing that that case has been made for
fulldisjunctions.  FD may be cool, but coolness isn't a (sufficient)
