[development] So why we do support postgresql?

I'm with Killes on this one, somewhat grudgingly, but I came around after
the last debate on the topic.

I now do all my Drupal development on pgSQL.  Then I run code into
production on MySQL. Think of it as a development "best practice" on the
order of simpletests.

Sadly, I've been working on other projects and not core.

Also sadly, I started down this path because no one else would test my
modules on pgSQL.

For us Mac users, the Marc Liyanage package (of course) is simple to
configure.  http://www.entropy.ch/software/macosx/postgresql/
