Reviewed patches

SQL-language reference parameters by name v1.1
script binaries renaming
We must conduct a poll on a wide audience, say pgsql-general. Zdenek?
The poll seemed to agree that a "pgc" prefix command was the way to do it.
Updated WITH clause patch (non-recursive)
Fragments in tsearch2 headline
Needs to be updated to apply against core tsearch instead of contrib. Teodor had other suggestions too.
This isn't maintainable unless it's refactored to eliminate code duplication with plpgsql.
psql slash# command
Author will revise based on discussion.
Consistent \d commands in psql
Discussion led to a redesign that now needs to be implemented.
preread pages in bitmap index scan using posix_fadvise
reviewed by: Simon, Heikki, Martijn
Headers dependencies cleanup
A more thorough investigation of layering of these header files has been requested.
updated hash functions for postgresql v1
The word-wide-hashing aspect of this has been cleaned up and applied; we still need to find out if we want to use the new mix() macro.
Auto-explain patch
Reviewed by Simon, needs more work to be ready
Ordered Append WIP patch v1
Reviewed here and here
