The reason pgsql is not mentioned is that the document began as me trying to 
convince my boss to use LAMP (P==PHP, not PostgreSQL). I only posted when I 
realized how much time I had spent on the thing.

I have decided to create a list that I'll post to my web site, and keep 
current. That can have postgre as long as people are willing to help maintain 
it (same goes for mysql, php, apache, and linux). Hell I can just create a 
little PHP script and have an administrator for each component. If someone 
really wants, they can do ASP, JSP, Perl, Python, whatever... eMail me if 

That aside, my understanding is that MySQL recently added support for 
transactions + stored procedures... Am I wrong? Has this been applied to the 
stable branch, or just dev?
