Don't underestimate the strength of the word "legacy".  To be honest, if we 
had the manhours to rewrite it, we'd take the opportunity to run it 
directly against the PostgreSQL server.

What we're gaining out of this system is the ability to migrate our old 
applications at our leisure, and the opportunity to write new applications 
against a real RDBMS that contains the same data.  It's certainly not the 
ideal, but it's working out very well for us.
