I've yet to find *anyone* who likes the Oracle installer. It's
absolutely the last thing I would use as a point of reference.
Come to think of it, the DB2 installer was a pile of crap as well...
My concern with this installer is that people are going to show up in
-general or on IRC in droves with dependancy related problems with the
installer. IMO it would be *much* better if we instead focused on
something that made it easy to install stuff out of contrib and/or
pgFoundry (and prefferably could be used without a GUI).
But, OSS works by people scratching itches, so if there's folks who want
to scratch this itch...
