Will MySQL be there? I wonder if we could get someone from each side and do a
MySQL v Postgres shootout. Perhaps in the form of some kind of academic debate
or something with 30s per side back and forth...

It would be terrible from a traditional marketing point of view (it would end
up being mostly "look at all the terrible things the other guy does"). But I'm
sure it would be a crowd pleaser and it's the kind of thing Open Source can do
openly in good humour that proprietary software does with malice behind closed
doors.
