Sorry Richard, I was more commenting on the part that you quoted from 
SteveC as I could not respond to his comment directly.

Also I'm not trying to stop development here, I was merely trying to 
point out that migrating to PostgreSQL would probably be easier, less 
time consuming and more future proof then the current MyISAM database. 
Of course that doesn't mean that the admins/devs *should* do that...

Just trying to help here...
