Probably all three. The story is, anyway, that if you create a database to use
a certain table storage type (not the default), then MySQL supports

For storage behind O/R, MySQL probably is the best choice. PostgreSQL, because
of its support for ORDBMS thingies, is of course more interesting but I
haven't been able to come up with a good mapping between an OO environment and
an ORDBMS (I think it's even harder than O/R mapping :-)).
