Not really ... mostly we're just good at keeping our struggles out of the 
public eye, and focused on "what's good for PostgreSQL."

As I've said before, mostly it's a matter of trust; very few people would 
accuse Tom or Bruce of having ulterior motives that would trump their desires 
to promote & improve postgresql.   So while one may disagree with Tom on 
hackers (and lose the argument) one pretty much always feels that one's ideas 
were rejected on real grounds of merit, strategy, or database theory -- even 
if you don't agree with his conclusions.

Of course, there is a real finesse to getting your ideas through Hackers.  ;-)
