I think its quite reasonable for the one line description of a postgres 
bug to reference "CVE-2005-0247 multiple buffer overflows..." or 
whatever, I guess it kind of depends on which came first...  if the CVE 
security item came first, and was entered into the PGSQL bug tracker, 
then this makes a LOT of sense.  if the CVE folks create their entry 
AFTER the bug has been entered into PGSQL, it makes less sense.
