If this is the impression that someone gave, I am shocked ... Thomas
himself has already posted stating that it was a scheduale slip on his
part.  Vadim did up the software days before the Oracle OpenWorld
conference, but it was a very rudimentary implementation.  At the show,
Thomas dove in to build a basic interface to it, and, as time permits, has
been working on packaging to get it into contrib before v7.1 is released
...

I've been trying to follow this thread, and seem to have missed where
someone arrived at the conclusion that we were proprietarizing(word?) this
... we do apologize that it didn't get out mid-October, but it is/was
purely a scheduale slip ...
