If this is just postgresql, why would I use this implementation over postgresql?

It also seems like it scales linearly with some decrease in ROI after 12 nodes.

It's not "just" PG, it's like a mega-extension with data-types and tuple-layout and a tonne of magic for the data-domain.

You can, of course, make similar models with plain PG - in the same way one does GIS without PostGIS.

"mega-extension" <-- I like that!
