Don't you mean: WordPress isn't aiming whatsoever /at the moment/  to be compatible with....?

Think of it like adding another hook - you're not /losing/ anything, but you are providing WordPress users with huge possibilities. If someone is willing to undergo writing code that will /not harm/ WP *and* add the needed GENERIC (as in not PGSQL-specific) code needed to make multi-database support happen - what's your argument?

It sounds like you're against the idea of anything other than MySQL, even though all of the concerns outlined in the Codex *and* here in the ML would be addressed...

I could be wrong, of course.
