I've thought it is ... the only reason to prefer MySQL in the past has
been better read performance.  By every other metric I've felt that
PostgresSQL is a "better" database and have wondered why everybody was
using MySQL for everything.  The only reason I can think of is the
"network effect" which is one of the reasons Windows is popular
(everybody knows somebody that knows it).
