I definitely think that the lists are one of the shining stars for 
postgresql support. I've learned some good reference stuff from online 
docs/google but the really tricky questions were only answered here, and 
amazingly enough, quickly and with good humor. Perhaps what we really 
need is somebody to comb through the archives looking for common 
problems or exceptional solutions and compile them into a "book".
