PostgreSQL is going to be a fuller implementation of SQL.  There are
already people doing a port of Ars Digita to it, which I believe would
not be possible to do with mysql.  Completion of this port will need
full implementation of referential integrity, which will be partly
implemented with release 7.0 (beta due Feb 15th).

Look at pages under http://www.postgresql.org for a feature
comparison of various databases.
