Do you have any experience, etc. with this? I've used both, but haven't
pushed Postgres very hard at all. For me, MySQL was familiar after my
initial usage of mSQL. However, I've used the DBI interface with my admin
software so a switch to postgreSQL would be possible. (although ugly
since, AFAIK, it doesn't have the auto-increment type...)
