By "everyone" I suppose you mean the dozen or three people who are
paying close attention to who's doing what in PG development.  The
above argument is hogwash, really.  If SQL/PSM support were so widely
desired as to justify a code addition of this size, then the archives
would be littered with requests for it.  Try to find some.  (As a
reasonable comparison point for what it takes to justify a large
code addition, compare that to the number of times that text search
requests show up --- most of them coming from people who don't know
who Oleg and Teodor are.)

I'm not against having SQL/PSM support.  I'm just saying I'm not
willing to support two copies of plpgsql to do it.
