I agree, an oops on my part :)

I wasn't responding to you, just to the seemingly closed-mindedness of
the original question/statement.  We're all aware of the reasons, for
and against, proprietary system licenses prohibiting benchmarking.

Certainly, but can one expect to get a realistic answer to an, "is
Oracle fearing something" question on he PostgreSQL list?  Or was it
just a backhanded attempt at pushing the topic again?  My vote is for
the latter; it served no purpose other than to push the
competitiveness topic again.

Not preferably, you make me type too much :)
