Wow, very cool David.  This is something we have talked about having before, 
and we seem so close now I think we need to find a way to make it happen. 
David, I noticed your news feed points to us19 rather than the main server... 
just curious if there was any reason why?  I am thinking if we could set up 
www.postgresql.org/news.rss we could make that a public news feed that folks 
could pull from.  It would also be included in the mirror system if someone 
needed to pull a local feed (though it would be slightly delayed).   The only 
question I would have is how does this fit in with the web code rewrite / 
translation stuff?
