We had no plans to support postgres. There is too much MySQL based code both in the core application and in many third party modules.
I had a quick look at your code and it seems that you are really making the code use postgres INSTEAD of mysql, not supporting both.

Since MySQL is a very stable and powerful DBMS, personally, I think it would be better to dedicate our effort to making sure it works with MariaDB and <!-- m --><a class="postlink" href=""></a><!-- m -->

In fact there is a ticket in our system to completely eliminate postgres references:

<!-- m --><a class="postlink" href=""></a><!-- m -->

I would need a lot of convincing to take this up and definitely it would be without sacrificing MySQL, you would have to show me code that supported both DBMS

I am open to your comments.
