That's true, but from the currently summorted databases postgress carries out
automatic optimisations, mysql accepts OPTIMIZE. 

Can't we make an db_optimize() abstraction function, with mysql backend
using OPTIMIZE TABLE, the default other doing nothing, and if more 
backends are added they will be resposible for doing something else
than nothing.
