They have, actually. Particularly professional marketing types, who
*do* have some experience when it comes to slogans.

And it's possible we won't change it just because we can't come up with
a better one.

Actually, I heard this from a couple of Drupal folks at LCA just last
week. And *in general* Postgres now has the image of being
high-performance, powerful, big, and very, very complex. This is one of
the reasons non-relational DBs are getting so many new users.
Obviously, HOWTOs, tutorial, videos, and simple admin tools will go
further towards driving adoption. But I think we need work on our image
