What about them?

My point is that as long as we market/advertise the *site*, the URL to get
there isn't going to matter to anyone ... only that they can find it ...
its a branding issue, not a 'how to get there' issue ... hell, in most
cases, ppl are going to click on the link from www.postgresql.org without
even looking at what the URL itself is ...

Sorry, car analogy was a bad one in that case :)
