	What *are* you talking about?  This is based on extensive
experience with which version??  Which platform "isn't very stable", as
I'm running on Solaris/sparc and FreeBSD here, and haven't seen any
instability problems since v6.0 ... Vadim is running it on a FreeBSD box
with a several GB(?) database ... hell, someone I know from my past sent
me email the other day saying he was switching from msql to postgresql
because he was seeing 10x faster performance doing the same thing on Karl
Denninger's server...

	Actually, it couldn't have been more then 4 months ago, since the
"some postgres developers" was me, and i know it was *since* v6.2.1 was
released, as I was hoping to get it into v6.3...
