I find it funny that PostgreSQL - while being used as replacement for
Oracle by more and more people - does _not_ have this
problem... I didn't
even have a NIC in the server when I installed it...
(And yes, PostgreSQL does have ACL's - but the ACL list is checked at
connection time - not everytime you execute a DML statement.)
Are you seriously suggesting using PostgreSQL over Oracle, in production?
Mind you, I do pgsql too. But, not in high-volume production.
