I don't think PgSQL, Inc can be called a "corporate front to
PostgreSQL".  It is a PostgreSQL support company, and provides free
hosting services to the project.  I also wouldn't use the word
"symbiotic".  We could say Great Bridge was also "symbiotic" but it
conotates an equality between the two entities that isn't accurate.
