OK. At the moment, the installer is setup to install the Unicode driver
as 'PostgreSQL'. As this is something we cannot keep chopping and
changing, and we're about to set things in stone for 8.2 - should I make
that 'PostgreSQL Unicode'? Should we include the ANSI driver as well for
now, or just ship the Unicode?

Although I'd like to have only the one driver, if there are real
problems with those remaining latin/BDE issues I'm happy to go with 2 -
we just can't keep changing the driver name in production releases!!

I don't see any problem with new features as long as they are stable and
don't break backwards compatibility. MSDTC support sounds like a fine
improvement.
