Certainly.. but people do that. Because copmparing unknown to a known idea is 
only way to learn it. 

If all I know is mysql, I am going to try and model postgresql to fit mysql 
point of view. Soon enough postgresql will grow out of it but that is a 
different story.

That is right. but that fact remains that postgresql documentation is just 
sufficient. If you read the manual and follow it religously to comma and 
fullstop, it tells you everythings. But it certainly isn't a place where you 
can glance over it and get hang of it.

Now how good practice of 'glance over and get hang of it' is, remains a topic 
of debate though..:-)
