That's possible, I was thinking about something more 'general' so that
we could support new PostgreSQL modules w/o changes to the postgresql
base package. If this is pretty much the only case then it'd be less of

I understand your attitude and concern. I think these things will need
to be handled on a case-by-case basis though. For this specific case
(linking against libstdc++) I really don't think there's that much to
complain about. Chances are pretty darn good you've already got it
installed, it's part of base, apt-get uses it, etc. I don't think
linking it in would really add much additional weight to the postgresql
server (it's only loaded if it's used anyway...) either.
