This particular discussion seems really pointless, and not helping
advocate either PostgreSQL or any other OSDB.  Give it a rest, thanks?

The useful thing here would be to come up with a document which explains
how PostgreSQL is different from other DBMSes and the use-cases we're
particularly good for.  This is a question I get all the time, and it
would be lovely to have a doc for it.  It doesn't have to say any bad
things about anyone else's database -- in fact, it's better if it
doesn't -- just specifically what we really shine at in general terms.
