Not so great. SQL:2003 has a special meaning for the word "module."

Yeah I saw mention of that in another thread, but I really didn't like
the word plugins. Do you have another thought? Extensions?

"Extensions" would tie in nicely with its common use in the docs, especially wrt pgxs:

I don't mind this term, BUT, what we need to get across is not just that these are extensions, but that they are *standard* extensions, supplied with PostgreSQL core code and supported by the PostgreSQL core team. This would be analogous with, say, the standard perl modules (like Exporter or IO::Handle) that come with the standard perl source distribution. If we can get that idea across then we might lower the resistance of people like hosting providers to loading them.
