I would hope that what we do with contrib/tsearch2 is rewrite it as a
compatibility wrapper.  This at least will provide an answer to anyone
who complains that we renamed the functions.  But if there are
fundamental things missing in the core implementation, and we try to
make the wrapper supply them, then we haven't really eliminated the
problem ... just moved it over a little.
