This is really, really good news. With you and Hiroshi both pretty much
withdrawn from development, I was afraid psqlODBC would die on the vine.
(I have no time to contribute to it either :-()

One comment on your todo list:

I think this is really critical and should be done ASAP. We already
have at least one known issue of this kind. The bad news of course
is that it is boring, tedious work ... but on the other hand it's a
great way to learn one's way around the code. I hope that several of
the new developers will perform such reviews.

regards, tom lane
