Errr, you miss my point.

Those are (kind of) abstract examples.  ;->

I'm trying to point out that - PG is a database system - and MS may have 
just been granted a patent for a fundamental part of it.

Thinking it might need looking in to, and trying to bring it to the 
attention of some that can (or even cares?). ;>

Regards and best wishes,
