FWIW, I voted yes, but my vote depended upon it being a
comp.databases.postgresql.* hierarchy, done according to USENET
guidelines.  I sense that would be a lot more important for PostgreSQL
in the long term and a lot more sustainable in general than a pgsql.*
hierarchy.  It's been my experience that processes done outside the norm
tend to have extra problems along the way that cost more than the
immediate gratification is worth, even if it does seem more painful at
the time.

My $0.02.
