I see PostgreSQL taking a major leap forward with 8.0. You will
undoubtedly appeal to a much larger market. That in turn will increase
the pressure. You are getting increasingly popular and somehow you must
see to that this popularity is reflected in the amount of sponsoring
that you receive. If you don't, you will face even bigger resource
problems in the future.
A good way to appeal to sponsors is to extend what you do today to
include more features so what I'm suggesting would probably be a good
thing in that respect.
Perhaps I'm a bit to visionary. But I really think you (the core
commitee) need to consider this.
