Actually no, you can list them on less than two hands. There are MANY 
companies yes, but there are only a few that contribute at the level 
that I am talking about.

SRA - Bruce/Tatsuo - Core and MultiByte

Fujitsu - TableSpaces and a programmer sponsor

RedHat - Tom Lane - Enough said.

Afilias - Jan, Andrew (and one other I don't recall)

Command Prompt - MySelf (Editor N Chief), Sergey and all the code we 
have already hashed over

HUB/PGSQL - Marc -- bandwidth, server resources

Agliodbs - JoshB -- Advocacy and Core

If I missed a company I apologize.

And no it wouldn't. I brief blurb, three sentences at the end of a major 
release PR. -- Thanks to: <small list>

Then we are obviously not as opposed you we possibly seemed.
