Yeah, I didn't say I *liked* their schema, just that I thought it would 
be easy for them to support Postgres ;-)

Like it or not, they are one of the larger ERP/CRM players (after the 
merger with JDEwards, they will be *ahead* of Oracle, only second to 
SAP), and having them offer PostgreSQL support would be significant. If 
the XA/Tuxedo thing is an issue, they could position it for mid-tier 
customers who don't need the transaction manager anyway.
