[wp-hackers] Porting Wordpress to PostgreSQL

Just writing to put my hat in the ring...

I've got pretty extensive experience with adoDB and I'm already
investigating a WPmu-to-Oracle port for my primary employer.

If anyone else is interested in a more complete abstraction, not just
mod's for one DB in particular; count me in.

The other advantage of adoDB that isn't mentioned in the wiki page is
that if you have the extension compiled in it will automatically use
the functions from that and is pretty damn fast :)
PEAR's DB abstraction sucks. Sorry to any PEAR fans reading this ;p

and I'll show you 50 that clicked it by mistake and left your site in
disgust. :)
