[rt-users] Full text index with MySQL 5.6

Can I just confirm a couple of things here? (since I'm just about to upgrade our slightly aged RT system)

If I migrate my 3.6.5 mySQL-based system to 4.x, the current content searches will still work at the same sort of speed that they do now, will they not? Is the full-text search in postgres-based systems an enhancement or is 4.0/mySQL/content search a regression over 3.x?

Is there a simple way to migrate from mySQL to postgres?

Thanks in advance,
