I have to focus on building this to meet my needs, and my customers'
needs...  PostgreSQL support isn't among these needs as far as I can
see.  However since there is a standard for Python database API's, it
shouldn't be too hard for someone to replace MySQLdb with the
PostgreSQL equivalent, or even make this a configuration option.
(I'll welcome patches for making this a configuration option :-)
