Well, there is a reason why I put a big label there "Unofficial TODO
List". I tried to make it clear that it's not an official stance of the

If someone wants to spend an afternoon putting up a coherent
description of their wishlist item complete with possible problems and
solutions, then I don't see why we should stop them. The page someone
has put up covering XML told me more about the current state of XML
support in postgres than a few hours of archive searching would.

It's just not official, that doesn't make it any less useful.

Two points I'm not clear about on this thread though:

1. Authorized user: is that someone with an account, or someone who has
been authorized by someone else?

2. I can see the official todo list being in CVS, which gives it all
the access protection it needs. A wiki todo list can stay where it is,
just that it's not official.

[I've just made a reference to the TODO list in CVS from the wiki, that
should help].
