I agree wholeheartily !!

Aside from the packaging issue, which should become a mute point if accepted
as an 'offical' contributed module,  this should also insure that PostGIS
compatable with future improvements in PostgreSQL as the core PostgreSQL
team would hopefully help with this as necessary.

IMHO this is the 'compelling reason' to pursue this approach.
