wow, i never knew there was so much name tension built
up.  ;-)

i could see how it would be a pain to explain it over
the phone, though.

"like 'postgres" with a 'ql' on the end.  get it?  it
ends in SQL."

i wonder if someone would pick up on it if explained
like above.

i do remember jacking the name up but good when i firt
started, but it didn't take long to get it straight
and then it was a non issue.  i guess i'm one of the
few folks who natively thinks of it as postresql - i
rarely use postgres.  if ever.  i'll use pgsql before postgres.
