Unless your target platform is Windows, in which case Postgres
presents an even more irritating licensing issue, in that not
only do you need a licence, but you need to decide who you're
going to get it from.

(Compatability of Firebird's SQL with any existing SQL you
have lying around is another matter which is giving me a major
headache at the moment.)
