The workaround for missing concurrent vacuum was to design your
databases so the your small and large OLTP tables are on different
servers or that you keep a replica and vacuum your large tables there
and then switch over to it.
It is debatable if that qualifies as "more easily worked-around"
The workaround for pl/python not allowing returning records and sets was
to write an actual pl/python function to generate the data and to store
it in global ditionary GD, a set of pl/python data retrieval functions
for each postgresql data type used and a wrapper function in pl/pgsql to
call the real function and then return the the data records using the
data retrieval functions.
May be simple, but a real PITA to do for more than one function.
I guess some other new features that were missing before were as easy to
work around :)

Sure. Actually I think that people were able to work around missing
features in 8.0/8.1 as well. The proof being, that people *did* actually
use postgresql before 8.x , some even on win32 ;)
