The other way, well not as good of course, would be to test PostgreSQL
fsync turned off against MySQL MyISAM. That wouldn't still be complitely
fair (unless there is a way to turn off implicit transactions of
PostgreSQL) though but the results could be of interest in comparing
PostgreSQL with default MySQL setup.
