Not really. Rather realistic, I'd say. It's a changing landscape, but
90% doesn't seem off at all to me.

With the possible exception that you don't really need to run
*efficiently*. Depending on what you mean, of course. Running as
efficient as MS Access does it certainly bad. Running as efficiently as
PostgreSQL does is definitly Ok in this case. PostgreSQL on cygwin (pre
8.0) is not OK.
