Yes.

As for any discussion around use of the alias in docs or anything like
that, we do not wish to discuss that further until at the very least we
have 8.3 out of the door.

Anyone that does wish to chat about such issues is welcome to do so on
the pgsql-chat mailing list which we will happily resurrect if people
want to use it. We *do not* want such chatter on the working lists
though (-advocacy, -www, -docs etc).

Thanks, Dave
