As I said in my first email, it just depends :).  I do plan on doing
tests against MySQL and Postgrest to see which would be better for
just serving out dynamic content (read only).  Whichever one wins
out will be the one i'm going to use.  Personally, I've had no problems
at all with MySQL...I'm looking into postgres because MySQL won't
do the things I need to do on my next product version.  And, the
data won't be copied between the 2, MySQL will be dumped to, and thats
it. So there won't really be much headache on that part.  When the time
comes, I'll choose.  Currently, I'm just planning ahead.
