The other way, well not as good of course, would be to test PostgreSQL 
fsync turned off against MySQL MyISAM. That wouldn't still be complitely 
fair (unless there is a way to turn off implicit transactions of 
PostgreSQL) though but the results could be of interest in comparing 
PostgreSQL with default MySQL setup.
