I like the old mozilla approach of "Reclaim your inbox" as a thunderbird
slogan.
I think that we could use something similar like:
PostgreSQL: Reclaim your database.
PostgreSQL: Regain control of your data.
PostgreSQL: Take your data wherever you want to go.

I think it synthesizes the notion of being in control of data and having
a flexible development plataform, something that was previously
mentioned in this thread.
