As a packager, I think it's a good thing that language bindings are
viewed as separate by upstream.  Often projects have various language
support, and detect them at configure time, but that doesn't really fit
the packaging workflow, which wants the base to not use any extra
languages, and then to have specific separate packages for each language
support, depending on postgis and ${language}.

So +1 from someone who doesn' get to vote.
