Well, no, it's not.  We have told people till we're blue in the face
"post early, post often".  Now I will plead guilty to not always having
spent as much time giving feedback on draft patches as I should've, but
the process is pretty clear.  As I see it the main problem is people
undertaking patches off in corners somewhere rather than discussing
their work on the mailing lists while they do it.

If you want more process in this we could institute rules like "feature
patches will be rejected out of hand if there wasn't previously a spec
proposal posted to pghackers".  I don't think this is really a good
idea, but I'm not sure what else to do.
