No, it's not fair to say that. PostgreSQL and MySQL are both supported
equally well in Interchange itself, and both are widely used by
Interchange developers on production systems. That's not to say no one
will ever have trouble with some minor Interchange feature using one or
the other database, but that's nothing to change databases over, either
