Hmm, can we make separate schema for all contib modules and include it
in default search_path? It will not touchs most users.


Oh now that is interesting... something like a contrib schema that
everything is loaded into? That would would work nicely and removes a
lot of problems.

People can use the modules if they want, they don't have to enable the
functions but they aren't in the way of their app or db either.



I think I'd rather have one schema per module than one for all of contrib, but maybe the addition to the search path makes a single schema more sensible.

Another approach to backwards compatibility issue, perhaps, would have 2 install scripts per module, one that installs stuff in the public schema for legacy purposes, and one that uses a dedicated schema.
