It is not irrelevant.  This is an Open Source project, not some Dot-Com where 
you can float good ideas until you go bankrupt.   If there's no possibility 
of us getting a major 3rd-party certified battery of QA tests donated, why 
bother putting it on the TODO list?

Would it be nice if we had more tests?  Yes.  In fact, one of the items on my 
personal todo list is to devise a more versatile performance test than 
pgbench for testing postgresql parameters, builds, and installations.  But 
it's not getting done by me carping at people on the Hackers list.  It'll get 
done when I spend a long weekend writing Perl.

Put up or shut up time, Dann.
