This discussion is pretty pointless. Dries has stated multiple times
that he wants to increase the number of supported databases. So doing a
Drupal release without full pgsql support is out of the question.

So, I'd like to revert the idea: People who complain about postgres not
been tested and the release being late because of this should set up a
postgres DB and test Drupal on it. Can't be that hard.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.6 (GNU/Linux)
