We had 3 PostgreSQL maintainers in the last 3 years. All of them left.
This leaves PostgreSQL in Limbo, not really a first class citizen, but
officially abandoned, and hold back patches.

So the problem is the current status quo.

I am sure Karoly will be happy if a real maintainer shows up and stays.
So the problem of delaying MySQL patches is gone. He wants database
agnosticism too, but not the current status.
