Someone else might give a more accurate answer based on the actual dates
from our last few releases, but my guess is at lease 3 months from the
beginning of beta.

pg_autovacuum is being included in the PostgreSQL backend for 7.5.
However, there isn't much work involved in setting it up for 7.4. I
don't know what type of system you are on, but I know the redhat
postgresql-contrib rpm includes pg_autovacuum. Then you just have to
run it. I can help you get started if you need it.
