Rudely replying to myself to add:
The same level of customizeability could be added for MySQL using a
configuration file or compiling things in as they are now, but the
abstraction that stored procedures and views give you is basically
a way to store that configuration within the database, so no
configuration file is needed outside of connection string details.
I imagine that MySQL will probably add this functionality one day a
few years down the road, but it's not there yet.
I think that customizability is very important, because it without
the ability to tie vpopmail in with my centralized password
database, I really have no reason to use the PG support at all.
However I am in full agreement that performance is of the utmost
importance as well.
