That's some amazing stats, Merlin.  I'm coming at Postgresql from the 
PostGIS spatial data add-on.  The availability of its capabilities on 
Win32 means that a very sizable chunk of geographic data managers will now 
have an alternative to the monopolized geographic data products market. 

All this postgresql work very exciting and I'm glad to be able to witness 
this turning point.  I suspect it is going to be quite a ride!
