I'd like to know what could motivate the usage of PostGIS behind MapServer
as a source of Vector Data instead of regular Shapefiles? Could it be
I realize that updating raster data is easier on a spatial database than on
a shapefile.

Do we get a different set of features from MapServer if we use PostGIS in
the backend?

Thanks in advance.
