I would be worried if I were you (or Joshua Drake for that matter): does
the agreement apply to commercial companies deriving products from
PostgreSQL as well?  Note that in the case of most projects, which are
licensed under the GNU GPL, this is not an issue, because any derivative
must also be GNU GPL.
