I disagree - there is lot of possible targets with much higher benefits -
columns storage, effective execution - compiled execution, implementation
of temporal databases, better support for dynamic structures, better
support for XML, JSON, integration of connection pooling, ...

There is only few use cases - mostly related to Oracle emulation when multi
threading is necessary - and few can be solved better - PLpgSQL to C
compilation and similar techniques.

The organization of work is hard, but pretty harder is doing this work -
and doing it without impact on current code base, current users. MySQL is
thread based database - is better than Postgres, or there is more users
migrated from Orace? Not.
