Though both of you are right from my point of view, I don't think
it's very useful to discuss this item here.

Having once migrated a MySQL-DB to PG I can confirm, that in fact
chances are good you will be unhappy if you adopt the MySQL
data-model and the SQL 1:1.
As well as PG has to be much more configured and optimized than
As well as the client-application is supposed to be modified to a
certain extend, particularly if you want to take over some -or some
more- business-logic from client to database.

But, from what Mark stated so far I'm sure he is not going to migrate
his app just for fun, resp. without having considered this.

or monetary issues
I know one big database that was migrated from Oracle to PG and
another from SQLServer to PG because of licence-costs. Definitely
there are some more.
That applies to MySQL, too; licence policy is somewhat obscure to me,
but under certain circumstances you have to pay
