Yeah, so long as Windows lets you throw as much memory as you need at
it, Postgres won't care that much about the edition it's running on.

The reason I asked is that a pg_hba.conf change just requires a
PostgreSQL configuration reload, rather than a restart that'd disrupt
anyone else connected in to the database.  But I'm not 100% sure how to
do that on Windows -- they used to have a shortcut in the Start menu,
but I'm not sure the one-click installer changed any of that.

Oh cool!  PostGIS sounds like it'd be right up your alley, then.  It
seems to be increasingly popular in the GIS community, too; things like
OpenStreetMap uses it of course, the FAA recently switched to it, etc.

Good luck!
