Someone else might give a more accurate answer based on the actual dates 
from our last few releases, but my guess is at lease 3 months from the 
beginning of beta.

pg_autovacuum is being included in the PostgreSQL backend for 7.5.  
However,  there isn't much work involved in setting it up for 7.4.  I 
don't know what type of system you are on, but I know the redhat 
postgresql-contrib rpm includes pg_autovacuum.  Then you just have to 
run it.  I can help you get started if you need it.
