As a case in point, EDB have spent quite a few man-years on their Oracle compatibility layer; and it's still not a terribly exact match, according to my colleagues who have looked at it. So that is a tarbaby I don't personally care to touch ... even ignoring the fact that cutting off EDB's air supply wouldn't be a good thing for the community to do. regards, tom lane -- Sent via pgsql-hackers mailing list (email@example.com) To make changes to your subscription: http://www.postgresql.org/mailpref/pgsql-hackers
