Mainly I want to know how many people use postgresql... Do I write
patches for only 10 people? 100? How many? 
What share of drupal users use postgres as a database? 5%? Maybe 20%?
If a problem arises that migh be impossibile to solve without favouring
one database system (the db_query_temporary() issue...) can I defend
"my" database firmly? I'm a very honest person and if 95% of drupal
users use mysql only I'd have moral problems with imposing things that
would inconvenience them ;) 

If this poll gets published, will only registered drupal.org users be
able to vote, or anonymous users too? I'd prefer the second option, as I
don't believe people would try to cheat.
