Yes Postgis can be made available on the server, are we sure the load is
high enough to warrant it over Spatialite? I can't recall if we moved
the Joomla backend to Postgres, if we did then +1 to add postgis to it.
If we are still using Mysql then we might want to try keeping the load
lower with Spatialite.

I believe Gary wrote the previous app and has it hosted on his servers,
so we'll need to ask him for the dump(hopefully he sees this).
