I think users would prefer %ProgramFiles%\PostgreSQL - that's what Mozilla
and some other projects do, although still other projects do
%ProgramFiles%\GNU\PostgreSQL.   

I'd vote for %ProgramFiles%\PostgreSQL.

Another suggestion: %ProgramFiles%\PGDG\PostgreSQL (or even
%ProgramFiles%\PGDG\PostgreSQL 7.5). Apache2 uses %ProgramFiles%\Apache
Group\Apache2.

Note: Many software uses the %ProgramFiles%\<VendorName>\<ProductName>
convention, but apparently Microsoft itself puts stuffs right under
%ProgramFiles% (%ProgramFiles%\Microsoft Money, \Internet Explorer, \Windows
Media Player, etc).
