I realize it is just a draft, but here is my feedback:

Yea, we said increased usability, but didn't list the items.  Will need
to wait for the list around beta start.

Also, the text file should be <80 columns so it can be read easily in
the browser.

Also, you mentioned Full Disjunctions, which doesn't look like it will
be in 8.2, and because it is so unusual, you would have to explain why
it is so great, and given the lack of community people saying it is
great, I am unsure if it even should be mentioned if it is on pgfoundry.

Also, we don't have some items in CVS like bitmapped indexes, so those
might need to be removed as the feature list solidifies.
