Unacceptable.
Please make it clear how many items should be fixed/reworked before
rejecting it due to the lack of time, at least.
(I'm optimistic for its design and quality.)
In addition, why does it impossible to be worked in parallel?
Maybe, I cannot contribute Simon's work, but I can fix/rework
for SE-PostgreSQL in parallel, with my highest priority.

As I noted in another message, the current trend strongly
requires "availability" and "security" for the platform of
SaaS/PaaS or cloud-computing. So, we should also include
SE-PostgreSQL within v8.4. I believe it makes PostgreSQL
more widespreadly applied.

IMO, this feature is also key factor for "availablity".
If author can have enough activity, we should not give up right now...
