I could be wrong but I believe he meant LINQ and MDX.  I was going to write
a really incredulous email about how we indeed don't have those features but
it turns out we have both:
There are a few open source and at least on commercial product to provide
LINQ to PostgreSQL support.  From what I can tell the open source products
aren't really done yet.  One says it doesn't support transactions.
The open source Mondrian project can sit in front of a whole bunch of
different databases, including PostgreSQL, to provide MDX capabilities.

The problem is none of them right out of the box so to speak.  They all take
fiddling.
