We currently have three extensions available, the gestures extension,
the zoom-persistence extension and the tabsmenu extension. I definitely
think they're release-quality, and distributions should package them.

That said, there are two problems currently:

1) One of those extensions, the tabsmenu, needs a patched epiphany to
work, because currently epiphany doesn't define ui merge points in its
ui file. So either the package needs to depend on a
known-to-contain-the-patch ephy package, or leave the tabsmenu extension
2) Epiphany loads every installed extension at startup. If you deem that
a problem, the packager needs either to provide multiple packages with
one extension each [which doesn't solve the problem in a multi-user
environment], or we need a way to let the user choose which extensions
to load; but that will have to wait for after Epiphany 1.0.
