I've gotten the DB work on one of our applications to the point where
there's a meaningful set of DB tests that can be run in automated
fashion.  As a result, I rotate between PG versions periodically; every
couple weeks, I recompile HEAD, and run a test against it to make sure I
don't see any regressions.

It would be insane to think about deploying on some 8.5-alpha version,
but it's nice to have something I can run in ~5 minutes that exercises a
fair bit of at least vaguely realistic functionality.
