I'm just a bit upset it can't use PostgreSQL instead of MySQL.  Gets me
riled up every time I come up against that.  Wordpress is the other one
that's pissed me off there.  As far as I'm aware neither of them use
features specific to MySQL.  They just didn't put any value in being
even slightly db agnostic.
