Probably.   I guess what I'm fishing for is a paragraph on expanded corporate 
contributions to PostgreSQL, regardless of from whom they came.  Afilias and 
FJ are easier because they're tied to specific contributions, whereas RH is 
propping up our spiritual leader.  CMD, of course, would show up in a mention 
of PL/perlNG.

Overall, I would *love* to have someone take a stab at a single, 4-5 line 
"expanded corporate participation" paragraph that mentions most companies.   
The press is really interested in knowing what companies back PostgreSQL.  
Also, it helps drum into reporters that PostgreSQL is not a single-company 
project.
