vinalla core - compare to, for example, text types in MS-SQL or MYSQL. compare to, for example, joins in Oracle.
as to the nuts, should you choose to go there:
- yes, rules are beautiful and an may instances literally rule
- table inheritance has never been fully implimented, eg, cannot inherit constraints or triggers or about anything else except a few columns
- extensible types are cool, and need to be played with once out of principle (paula), but for sanity and maintenace seldom used in production
- or more widely used, subtle extensions to SQL like
update from, which are quite nice and easy to parse by anyone SQL literate
Aesthetically, PG does not leave a bad taste in my mouth, which I cannot say for any other SQL.
