Thanks for the pointer Steve, that's pretty handy to know...

However I think it's safe to say it isn't ready for PostgreSQL yet.  
There's no information for sequences, for example. So if you  
"restore" a database with 50 tags into a clean PG-backed Typo, your  
sequence still thinks it needs to start at 1. So your very first  
INSERT (say, when you add a new tag record) goes *boom*. I'm willing  
to manually adjust all sequences as there aren't all that many, but...

Making things worse is the feedback table, which somehow has changed  
despite me not consciously making any. I'll try some db:migrate  
voodoo and see how far that gets me.

And after that: Manual SQL it is, then!
