This is a little vague to me.  Any app (which should be all apps) use
the DDL abstraction and should not experience any problems with the 255
character varchar limit, since code is in there to prevent an attempt to
create a larger varchar field.

Also, item #2 is slightly misleading.  While you should have a NOT NULL
on a primary key, it is not necessary on a unique index if your
application supports one possible record with a null value in the unique

MySQL and PostgreSQL support is very mature at this point.  Perhaps it
would help to provide more specifics (server OS, web server, db server
version) and paste the exact error messages as viewed on screen and/or
in any web server or sql server logs.
