Agree!

I'm one (of the last?) who uses 16-bit too. 
I know several companies (esp. with many PC's) which stay still in the
16-bit world.

If it is *really* a problem to support 16-bit AND 32-bit in one
source tree (I didn't see the great problems), a practically way could be
to split it into a 16-bit and 32-bit tree. Anyone who needs a 16-bit
version could (should) support the developement.

IMHO one the *greatest* advantages of PostgreSQL is the extremely wide
range of supported platforms and interfaces! 

Hoping OBC16 does NOT die,
