Well, not really ... but since our troll is a devoted MySQL user, it's a bit
of a red-herring anyway, at least as regards his own server.

You know, the one he's afraid to put Postgres on, but sleeps soundly at

semantics, archive logging and recovery from REDO logs and all that
will save him? :)

Again ... he's a troll, not even a very entertaining one.
