Ya, postgres has a different idea of OID. (I.E. when you do an insert into
table with auto-incremented column, you can get back an OID of the row
inserted, then you have to do a query (select pkey from table where
oid=youroid) to get the pkey. This allows to scale where more than one
field is autoincremented, or where autoincremented field is not pkey (or
where's no pkey).

I'll probably start with oracle schema, as mysql has way too many
non-portable idiosyncrasies.

Tomorrow is hacking day, and I'll try to do all that.

I managed to get RT 1.3.somewhere-in-march with postgres, shouldn't be
that hard to do it again. That RT was badly broken so I threw it away and
never worked more on it :)
