Do you think the existing docs are inadequete in this regard?  If so, 
in what areas are they insufficient?  What changes do you recommend?

FWIW, having a theme is a great idea.  Please let us know of any 
changes you see necessary.  But I, and others much wiser than I am,  
think a section where the admin can read up on the important stuff is 
essential.

If you were new to PostgreSQL, would you rather string together 
information from all over the documentation or would you rather have 
a concise overview of Things You Need To Know(tm)?

As always, patches are requested.
