Hey, I resemble that remark. But seriously I don't understand the need,
in limiting the discussion of new features or patches to just this list.
There are HACKERS-type things that pass through the QUESTIONS list all
the time (usually posted to both). Of course I'll admit that I've never
tried to manage anything with this scope or deal with the standard
Postgres users (I know we can be annoying), so I do see the potential
for the abuse. (Start accent here --) But here in Texas we don't shoot
the horse until he's broken his leg (-- end accent).
