For those that didn't read it:
 - not much info in there
 - it *is* mentioned, at least, that pgsql has transactions, while it is
announced as novelty for mysql (sort of)
 - it is *not* mentioned that many of the features announced for mysql
4.1 are already in pg now.
 - it is mentioned that sourceforge switched away from pg 'because it
didn't scale'.
 - it is mentioned that pg will add sql99 schema support
 - it is mentioned that pgsql inc is one of several companies offering
commercial support on pg
