I think you are mistaken about Unicode. It is much more mature on postgres. UTF8 was already offered on Postgres 7.3 while MySQL only managed to get it working in version 4.1.

Please see my other comment in this thread. There's the LIKE + indexes issue and there's the fact that postgres supports only one character set for the entire database, whereas mysql lets you choose on a per column basis.
