I don't think it would be. The "extra dependency" footprint of
postgresql-N.N on a typical system is often zero (e.g. libldap is
often already there anyway), and even postgresql-contrib-N.N will only
pull very few extra libraries. I'm even pondering fully merging the
contrib package into the main server package, but haven't decided yet.

Thanks for your input!
