Full, solid support for PostgreSQL is forthcoming.
(The "volunteer basis" thing means it's mostly working,
but sitting unreleased til I can justify time to finish it right.)

There are already some released PostgreSQL libraries for PLT.  I used
"spgsql" a little, and liked it, but I didn't want to have to QA and
maintain its protocol implementation.

On Unix, the only PLT database backends I'd personally like to see are
PostgreSQL, Oracle, and maybe a svelte "dbm"-like one.
