Let's get back to the original post:

In my opinion, any patch should be committable to core once it works on mysql and has a decent hope (use common sense) to work on postgresql. 

So, we are just skipping the final fine tune / testing steps. We do write garbge nor do we commit MysQL only code. I am willing (and I always did) to peek into the postgresql manual to see whether it has a solution to any problem at hand. This is not the same as actually writing the thing and testing but it gives, you know, a decent hope, that it will work on postgresql.
