Sure, it's definitely something to discuss if we keep running into these
issues, but my hope is really that upgrading SqlAlchemy will obviate the
need to deal with this at all, and that everything will 'just work' going
forward with whatever database folks want to use.  That said, if there are
others who want to just go ahead and migrate from MySQL to postgres a
tested protocol for doing so would be a great thing to try and put together
as a community and I'd be happy to help.
