Well, let's look from other direction. If php chooses sqllite, lot of people 
are going to crib for loss of mysql, which is not good for php community.

Postgresql would not enjoy overnight popularity because mysql to postgresql 
will not be a drop-in switch.

So somebody, sane and neutral enough in php community need to hammer this point 
that it is in there beneft to switch to postgresql.

Let's not push it too much. If it doesn't happen, we don't have much to lose 
but they do have. Let's make a point and move aside. If they think forward, 
they will consider.

Just my opinion. I know that in any kind of marketing, it does not work that 
way. But I believe unless both side see the value, no point pushing it.

Just a thought..
