This one, I would say, will be very difficult ... what if its a one of 
piece of software, that 2 ppl are using, but its very good at what it 
does?  Or a one of piece of software, that sucks royally but is the only

Behind what?  A list on pgFoundry of recommended software?  Sure ... 
integrating that list into the physical postgresql.tar.gz file that is the
