This discussion was taking place as we closed the 7.5 development cycle,
and we weren't getting PITR, tablespaces, nested transactions, 2PC, the
Win32 port, in the release.  We have all those things now.

We have gone a long way now, even though it was only a year ago.  My
question for everyone on this list is:  What are the "few remaining big
features" that you see missing for PostgreSQL?

Or, slightly different, what are people's most wanted features?

Has PostgreSQL started slowing down in getting new features, and
concentrating mostly on performance issues?
