Just wanted to pipe in here.  I am still very interested in tablespaces ( I have many 
database systems that are over
500GB and growing) and am willing to port my tablespace patch to 7.4.  I have 
everything (but only tested here) working
in 7.2 but the patch was not accepted.  I didn't see a great speed improvement but the 
patch helps with storage management.

Recap.  the patch would enable the following

    a database to have a default data tablespace and index tablespace
    a user to have a default data and index tablespace
    a table to have a specific tablespace
    an index to have a specfic tablespace

    I would like to also add  namespace (schema) to have a default data and index
