I would suggest that you read the email again. I was writing to a 
symbiotic type of relationship where the two are equal giving partners.
Not where one is more imnportant than the other.

If you have the sum of commercial interests providing for a large 
portion of the code being developed into the community, it makes sense 
that the community in return would acknowledge and show appreciation 
for; as the PostgreSQL normally does, the existence of the commercial 
support that goes into said community.
