 I've found <http://bugs.debian.org/228074> as history about the
removal, and it speaks about noone being interested to maintain it. The
relevant part from the ftp-master's removal file:

[Date: Thu, 31 Jan 2008 00:07:56 +0000] [ftpmaster: Joerg Jaspert]
Removed the following packages from unstable:

       plr | 1: | source
postgresql-8.2-plr | 1: | amd64, hurd-i386, m68k
postgresql-8.2-plr | 1: | alpha, arm, hppa, i386, ia64, mips, mipsel, powerpc, s390, sparc
Closed bugs: 228074

------------------- Reason -------------------
RoQA; RC-buggy, few users

 So it seems that actually the last plr version was even for 8.2, should
you think about reactivating it, should be fetchable from
snapshot.debian.net I would expect, I don't think it ever was in SVN, at
least svn ls through the team's repository didn't bring up much for me.

 So long,
