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.
