I'm disinclined to do that unless there's a pretty firm commitment from
someone to work on pg_upgrade in the near future.  Patches that are not
in the tree tend to suffer from code drift; if we wait six months or a
year to apply what you've done then we'll likely be looking at
significantly more work to get it in.  We'd also be losing the direct
and indirect testing that the patch would get were it in the tree over
that length of time.
