Is this issue of sufficient import to warrant an explicit mention in the
point release announcement mail, beyond the standard one-liner in the
list of updated packages? I have to admit that I don't know how common
TOAST tables are.

Thanks. Given upstream's past record I don't expect any particular
surprises but I'd still like to find time to go through the diff in a
little more detail.

They're auto-generated by the queue processing tools once they spot the
upload (so within 30 minutes of the upload hitting p-u-NEW). Manually
generated diffs are more useful for allowing us to consider prospective
changes before they get uploaded. :-)
