I don't know about you, but I market PostgreSQL partially using

1. sane design, not driven by random demands
2. extensibility

which would be completely contradicted by moving any module into core 
for "marketing" reasons.

It's not like PostgreSQL is the first software product in the world to 
provide a module or plugin mechanism.  (It is incidentally the first 
DBMS to do so.)  People who refuse to understand that are idiots, and 
we don't design for idiots.
