You're correct, he did.  Tom?

Well, all I'm dealing with is that the *existing GPL code* can't stay.   
Let me know if Abhijit's version (or something else) gets accepted and 
I'll kill the pgFoundry project.

Overall, though, I think we should really wait until 8.3 for core merge and 
API improvements.  Wasn't Tom just complaining about last-minute features, 
and not enough code reviewers?
