The default project and the quickstart use shapefiles, but of course any
user might want to connect to a postgis database.

Some recent messages at our lists are reporting that gvSIG doesn't work
against a PG 2.0 database so it is using some SQL calls that are not
present at the new version, or maybe the Java driver must be updated, I
don't know.

So, if there is any way to have a 1.5 database it will be possible to any
user to access it but I can't be strong on asking for this, first because I
don't like to put more work on others if I can't help and because I accept
that gvSIG has to update its driver and in fact, having 2.0 on the OSGeo
Live is a good "push" for us.
