I know people are big into name dropping/credit giving, but istm that
there is something wrong with this... like it seems to be a slap in the
face to sra/red hat to say that this piece is sponsored by afilias while
not mentioning the other two companies anywhere given the host of
features that tom/bruce worked on... I think I would rather see the
statment at the begining reworded as 

"Many companies such as Afilias, Fujitsu, and Command Prompt, view
PostgreSQL as a strategic part of their overall I.T. plan and have
sponsored development of the some of the new features which include:"

We could then remove the name dropping from being splattered all over
the release itself and instead at the bottom of the press release you
include a small paragraph on each of the companies mentioned
(Afilias/Fujitsu(or FAST)/Command Prompt) and what they do.
