It's more that we thought that all these features would get done in
about the same timeframe, and (not too surprisingly) some got done and
some didn't.

Yeah, this is why I'm not in favor of slipping more.

Time was that we had a major release every 3 or 4 months.  As the project
matures I think it's appropriate for the cycle to get slower: a lot of
low-hanging fruit is gone, so we have larger jobs to tackle, plus users
are using PG for larger databases and don't want to face major-version
changes too often.  But I don't want it to get to be a year on average
between releases, at least not yet.  8 or 9 months seems reasonable, and
by that standard we're overdue.
