The context suggested that you were; my apologies.

Correct.  The real issue here is that everyone builds their own, and
*if theirs breaks because MySQL sucks^Wis a less impressive DBMS engine
than PgSQL*, they're the only one who bitches.

If I *were* building commercial boxen, and I had 10,000 of them out
there, paying someone to dig those dependencies out and make it
possible for me to run them atop Pg would almost certainly be one of my
first budget items.  I didn't say I felt *general* DBMS compatibility
was a necessity.

Lots of people are perfectly comfortable exposing their business to
MySQL.  Others wouldn't dream of it.  In the latter camp, here.  ;-)
