There's been some discussion before: http://archives.postgresql.org/pgsql-patches/2006-05/msg00327.php The most useful feature IMHO would be if the installed modules could be recognised as a block (using pg_depends) so that: 1. pg_dump can see them and emit only INSTALL <module> 2. Uninstall removes everything that was installed This only covers installtion though, not building or compiling.
