Well, I did say it was a *crazy* idea. :-)

Given that I would be starting from the ground-floor, learning not only
the innards of PostgreSQL but also C coding as well, I would probably
have to overcome near-insurmountable odds to make this project take off.  Still,
if I was crazy enough to think it, maybe I'll be crazy enough to 
try for it. ;-)

Just ignore my 2nd posting, I was trying to clarify some of the 
ramblings I was typing.
