This has come up several times on the PHP list already.  There is no
technical reason as such not to use Postgresql, but there is a performance
one.  Apparently the overhead of setting up a connection is such, that is
it not advisable to use Postgresql for these types of operation.  Nobody
has therefore taken the trouble to set it up.
