Agreed.  One concern I have is that we have waited for Simon to complete
this for 1.5 years, and now with a week left he is still working on it
(or starting on it).  I am wondering if someone else needs to take this
on, because if Simon doesn't complete it in a week, we don't have it for
8.2, and we would then have to sit through another year of PITR
complaints.  :-(
