Again, note that this is in extension code which implicitly holds no promise
of actually being useful. Notably, extension code can change how it behaves
quite randomly, and can fall out of maintenance as easily. This is why we
can take whole extensions as external contributions in quite a relaxed
fashion (and this is a good thing).

Thin of the "Extensions" directory as 'contrib' directory.
