I have tried it, and it does about 99% of the job.  There are a few 
things that are MySQL version-dependent (added in later mysql versions) 
that sqlfairy doesn't deal with appropriately, but those can usually be 
dealt with by a simple find/replace in the word processor or a 
perl/awk/sed script.  If you are a perl user, sqlfairy is also called 
SQL::Translator on cpan.

As an alternative, look in the postgresql distribution in 
/contrib/mysql.  There are two scripts for doing the conversion there.

Hope this helps.
