I understand why it's a wrapper.  I don't understand why the wrapper isn't at 
jdbc.postgresql.org.  Putting it on pgfoundry, completely separate from all 
the JDBC drivers, is pretty much a guarentee that nobody will ever download 
it.

Or is it moving to jdbc.postgresql.org once it's tested?

Just so everyone is clear on why this is important & urgent ... we published a 
benchmark[1] using the caching driver, which is the only published benchmark 
PostgreSQL has.  This benchmark has generated a huge amount of interest in 
PostgreSQL as an alternative to Oracle[2], and is very important to driving 
the adoption of PostgreSQL *especially* amoung J2EE developers.  So it would 
be nice to see the caching wrapper represented as "official" unless there's 
something technically wrong with it.
