8.3 contains XPath support which should cover the issue that this patch
addresses.  (Might wanna check.)  Since we're not going to put new
features into earlier releases, and contrib modules are not necessarily
source backward-compatible, I don't think this patch has a place in a
future PostgreSQL release.

I agree, assuming the upcoming XML support can handle default
(unprefixed) namespaces.
