I've tried PostgreSQL before, and if I remember correctly I couldn't
even build it. libpq looks interesting, I'd like to try it out.
Unfortunately it depends on unix, which would be a problem for Windows
users. If it looks like a good fit for persistent-postgresql, maybe I
can convince the author to replace the unix dep with something else
(unix-compat might be sufficient).
Thanks for the pointer,
