Note that not all of these are supported by RDS:

=> SHOW rds.extensions;
                                                                                                                                 rds.extensions

Have you had any luck getting plpgsql working in RDS? I'm blocked on extension ownership.

Wow, it's 55 extensions now. Not 34. Really check out the link mentioned above. I was happy to find out I can now type javascript inside of Postgres functions!
