Please don't take this as argumentative but I am curious why you think
that being used with CGI programs per se makes one database better
than the other.  It seems to me that there are a lot more issues to
consider such as what kind of data, what kind of data relationships,
how the data needs to be accessed, etc.  I use PostgreSQL for all my
database work, CGI accessed or not, except for where the data sets
are simple enough to use shelve.
