I actually consider the biggest problem the fact the the 'official' 
postgres jdbc website is very much out of date 
(http://jdbc.postgresql.org).  (it doesn't even have the 7.1 drivers). 
I feel that either someone needs to maintain this page; or someone needs 
to create a new website and get the jdbc.postgresql.org DNS entry to 
point to the new site, or the page should just be decommisioned.  At 
this point I think it is doing more harm than good.
