Greenplum have sponsored me in the past, from which we got Partitioning
and some major Sort improvements, as well as research into faster
loading. Greenplum engineers have provided a number of performance fixes
as well, mainly around the loading mechanisms. They've also provided
sponsorship for conferences and meetings, all very important.

For 8.4 we have some commitments to further development of partitioning,
plus hopes that bitmap indexes will be reworked for inclusion. With the
additional funding, I think we'll see those things happen.
