I added the necessary PostgreSQL extentions to it and placed it under
the bug # at

I haven't tested it yet, but PostgreSQL requires correct ANSI SQL '
placement.  Furthermore, one thing I cannot easily provide is the
LAST_INSERT_ID()/@@identity stuff.  PostgreSQL requires use of its
sequences for that and I'd reckon Oracle does as well (need to check).

What do we use it for anyway?
