Well perhaps it is time to trim Contrib even further. E.g;

Why is ltree still in contrib? What prevents it from being in core?

not sure - ltree is quite useful but I'm not convinced it is really core material

Why is pgcrypto,pgstattuple and pg_freespacemap in contrib?

I would like to see pgcrypto (or at least some of it's functionality) in core. pgstattuple is still being quite activily developed (just look at the large changes/feature enhancements for 8.2 which seems like a sign of it not being ready yet. pg_freespacemap is iirc new as of 8.2 so it imho never was a candidate for core.
