Agree with you there entirely.

PS: Why did I release them this way, well look how quiet I've been the last two 
weeks (on the list). Work got a bit too busy to do anything ;-) I didn't want 
the code (and there's a lot more waiting to be merged in). Anyhow, as 90% of 
them are PostgreSQL or JDBC specific this was the best place to put them.
