No need to fly off the handle there Josh.

No code, or no active code development?  Seems there is an important 
difference that plays in here...   looking a m-SQL it has code and could be a 
starting point for someone who was looking for that.  I'll grant that tips 
doesn't look like much more than an article stub... it should probably be 
moved to the new techdocs rather than pgfoundry.

Perhaps no one knew they needed to speak up... perhaps people couldn't even 
find them in contrib... how many people still ask if we have full text 
indexing? contrib isn't exactly the most visible place... 

All I am saying is that it couldn't hurt to put the information out there...   
we're not hurting for disk space and none of this stuff appears inherently 
wrong, just outdated, but it might still prove useful for some people.
