In general I agree with you. However we need to be careful here. For
example, the lead in quote we have for the 8.3 press release is from a
VP at Sun.
If it were up to me, we would never put a quote from a PostgreSQL
company in the PR. It should only be from actual users. I mean who
really cares that a PostgreSQL company thinks that PostgreSQL is great?
Let's hear from Etsy, ADP, Macrovision, Steel Rubber Products, Pagesix,
NOAA, NASA etc...
I would also note that it is likely too late to do this for 8.3.
