I am not sure I am buying this argument. Skytools/slony is not
PostgreSQL. Should we also include Greg's recent replication software?
Or perhaps pgCluster?

I can think of at least a dozen modules that would be cool to have in
contrib... plpgsm or orafce?

Yes this is just a "small" bit but Marko has already made suggestions
in his own thread of items that should possibly change. 

This needs to be pulled out, put on pgFoundry or submitted for 8.4.
