Agreed - and that's exactly why Hiroshi got left off I think. His work
included lots of testing and subsequent platform specific build fixes
and code cleanup/fixes.

I should also point out that the contributor list has always included
people who have contributed to non-core community projects in the past
as well - psqlODBC, the JDBC driver, pgInstaller, pgAccess, pgAdmin,
infrastructure/web etc.  so Josh's update should not necessarily remove
those people (though an argument could be made for giving those people
their own section).
