FWIW it was mentioned and discussed on the german postgresql list.

Right... these types of things come up all the time, whether they be 
benchmarks, contests, tutorials, or just general application support, and all 
of the commercial database companies (ie. oracle, ibm, ms, mysql) have people 
on staff to point at these tasks.  The community has been good about full 
time developers working on core, but seems to overlook all of the other areas 
that you can point a paid developer that will increase adoption.
