In my experience the new driver is better than the older one.  In fact,
it specifically addressed some issues people (Joel) were having in high
load production systems.

That being said, why not wait for the 8.1 release of postgresql and
release the odbc drive 8.1 at the same time?  That gives 1-2 more months
of testing and feedback.
