Actually, PITR is in no way analagous. Try replicating something like
'INSERT INTO table SELECT random();' on MySQL and note how all the data
is different.

pgpool replication is equivalent to MySQL's replication. Or if you want
more sophisticated replication, use Slony.

BTW, anyone curious about the differences should take a look at
google:'mysql gotchas' (there's also a PostgreSQL section on that site).
See also the MySQL/PostgreSQL thread that was on this list yesterday.
