Umm, I can give you logs on ftp.postgresql.org going back to Apr 12th of 
2004, if that will help any?  Nope, 7.4 was released Nov 16th of 2003 ... 
oh, looks like I can give back to Jun 4th 2003, since the xferlog on 
developer.postgresql.org (where ftp.postgresql.org used to point) goes 
back that far ... might help gets some half-decent estimations?
