Just out of curiosity: mysql has no views?

And even though I wanted to hold my tongue, now that I'm posting I'll 
add some more reasons to use pgsql for interesting applications:

it really _is_ extensible, look at

postgis, http://postgis.refractions.net/, for ageographic datatype with 
R-Tree indicices for contained-in selects, _very_ nice for some apps and

GIST, http://www.sai.msu.su/~megera/postgres/gist/, with indices for 
tree and set datatyps. _Very_ neat, this. (!) Also used to implement 
full text search for postgres.

Cheers, Mathias
