The PG backend still works, even in 2.0.  You just can't use the
Save-As dialog to create a new one (because you cannot specify
a URI in the interface).  So your understand is not completely correct.
Regardless, the fact remains that we will still have the XML File Backend
and the GDA backend, and the XML File Backend will still require a Save
button..  So we cannot remove it.
