It works no problem...  They don't conflict at all, unless you're hitting
them so heavily that combined they want more than 100% of any of the system
resources.  For example, if your Postgres database needed 60% of your disc
IO subsystem bandwidth, and MySQL wanted the other 60%...

We have both pgsql and mysql running on a number of servers, simply because
different software we use relies on different databases.
