Karsten's statement is a pretty incomplete satement. Can lead to many 
different interpretations. 

The technical reasons should be named and maybe stored in our Wiki for other 
projects to reference. From a broader perspective your boss will always 
choose what most other CIO chose before him before then he cannot be wrong. 
This implies that those other people were wrong.

Anyway GNUmed might one day be able to make use of the PHP, MySQL hype. By 
allowing developers to use just that for the benefit of GNUmed.

Let's wait and see. PHP is definetely possible, why not. MySQL I don't know 
but for a MySQL pro Postgres shouldn't be that big a problem.
