Just scratching the surface so far, I hope to use it for a back end to a WMS/WFS 
server at some point.

Portions of our GIS data are pretty dynamic so PostGIS is a better approach than a 
mess of shape files. Also good integration with Mapserver and Geoserver.

Install from source went pretty well, I think...

So, now that I have it installed it occurs to me that I don't know anything about 
PostgrSQL. A quickstart guide that goes from download to compile to loading data 
would be useful. If there is nothing out there already I'll write something up when I get 
through it.
