sure that ISP is a bit stupid(especially wrt plpgsql) - but tsearch2 in
the current version is actually imposing some additional(often
non-trivial) complexity for things like database restores and upgrades
so I can see an ISP wanting to avoid that altogether.
A fully integrated fulltext search could make that much easier(in a few
years when most distributions have picked up 8.3) and just telling
people they should switch their hosting ISP is not always an immediatly
workable solution (think contracts,migration costs,legacy apps).
