	I've never actually installed mysql, so can't really compare the
two, but I've been using PostgreSQL for everything I need an RDBMS for
since I first took on the project 3 years ago now (wow, time flies)...each
release has gotten progressively faster, but we've pretty much hit a limit
as far as optimizations are concerned, there probably isn't a *noticeable*
difference between v6.3.2 and v6.4...

	We are hoping to have the PREPARE statement put into v6.5, which
should give a performance improvement in "repeatative queries", as the
planning for the query can be done beforehand, taking out a step...

	What do you mean by "fulltext searching"?
