As usual, I've been remiss lately in keeping up with my mail, but I
thought this was a good note to lean on.  I fully expected a series
of rather nasty surprises with the 8.0 release, given the piles of
new code plus the Windows port.  I think it is a real testament to
the quality of Postgres hackers, and the code you produce, that there
have been so few problems with 8.0.  If every dot-zero release of
every product were this good, people wouldn't be so gun-shy about

You folks should be extremely proud of yourselves.  Good work.
