In a current project, I am using Postgres, Oracle, and PHP. I think
PHP's API is very complete and usable, I can't think of anything we've
run into that was a result of PHP lacking a feature.
The only thing I'd like to see would be an Oracle construct moved to
Postgres. The idea that we can "prepare" a statement then execute it
multiple times without going through the planner more than once. This
would also require the ability to create and set arbitrary variables in
a Postgres session.
Since these are programmatic queries, only a handful of different SQL
queries are ever executed. The ability to cache the planned query tree
(is this the right terminology?) in a shared block, and simply reuse it,
in the multiple back-ends, with a new variable value, would speed up
some of the more complex queries, I guess.
