Although I don't see problems with two runlevel scripts sharing a
number, I must note that this assumption is IMHO incorrect. Although
these packages serve the same purpose, they differ in their speed and
capabilities. You should never make a blind choice when possible, why
choose if you can have both?

I do agree with you here. I'd consider these packages 'conflicting'
(they will need special configuration to be able to run at the same
time - changing the TCP port, for instance), where mysql and postgresql
are isolated one from the other.
