You're right. It would be nice to see benchmark of any cms developed
with Django on postgresql and mysql.
I tried to find benchmark of Plone on postgres vs mysql.

I'd tend to think (and I may be wrong) that as a rule of thumb,
being everything else equal, mysql is more suited to "commodity" cms
just because it is easier to find coupled with php in hosting (and
this reflects on communities etc...).

Still it would be nice to put the myth of mysql is better on cms,
since they are read most apps, to rest too.

But then... there are no popular [anything but php] cms but there
are a lot of [anything but php] web framework.

You start with a pre-packaged web application that looks like a
framework, then you start to do custom code, then you start to have
more impedance mismatch...
The more you've to code, the more you will prefer a framework and
postgres... but if you've coded enough it means you can afford to
code your own web application out of a framework and have your own
box (no hosting).

BTW which one of the example you posted uses ubercart?
I'd be curious about how many concurrent operation on the basket does
http://www.commandprompt.com/portal/
have...
