The problem with this proposal is that the ISPs aren't the ones running

the "standard" configuration for everybody using their packages. I'm
not sure that the packagers will change ... well maybe Gentoo will,
but not anyone with more conservative policies ... and I'm pretty sure
any who do will get push-back from people who still won't trust contrib.
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?
we have several requests to improve ltree, particularly, people want
to expand class of allowed symbols and configurable separator, which
is hard-coded right now. Also, we discussed GiN support for ltree.
