IMHO ... I would think that 8.0.0 brought enough to a press release to be 
able to stand on its own ... I question not that we don't promote 
commercial products, but that we are promoting anything but that which we 
are releasing: PostgreSQL RDBMS 8.0.0 ... anything else draws focus *away* 
from that ...

We are *not* releasing Slony ... nor is Slony "the first replication 
solution" ... hell, it isn't even the first *open source* replication 
solution, as I believe that pgReplication has that distinction ...

Replication for PostgreSQL is *not* a new thing ... its not something that 
is first available in 8.0.0, but has been available since 7.2 ... if it 
were something new, fine, touting that we've finally got a replication 
solution is good.  But replication is *old news*, plain and simple ...
