Hm, that makes sense, as someone who's looking for a support contact
naturally goes to postgresql.org. On the other side, we definitely want to
keep a 100% localized version directory.

OK, and just for fun - let's use PostgreSQL 7.4, which was just reached
EOL. ;-)

I didn't know about Openlayers - thanks, it seems very nice (although it
lacks some very important features - e.g. a geocoding support).

OK, I didn't realize that.
