Part of me hates to ask the question on account of local considerations 
(billing) but the other part of me figures I may as well ask, so here goes:

If oscar were implemented in postgres rather than mysql would that 
significantly, or only minimally, simplify the interoperability?

I understand that Oscar *has* been implemented using postgres by people in 
Brazil for whom the internationalization (and maybe other features) was 
important. But I don't know how up to date is the oscar cvs maintained for its 
postgres scripts and in Canada anywy it seems there are many fewer people 
available comfortable with postgres than mysql. But that is not a reason to not 
use postgres if it is better to do so.
