PostgreSQL supports grouping by primary keys in 9.1+ While MySQL has a similar feature, the PostgreSQL behavior is a little different. In MySQL it is enough to add one primary key into the group by, in PostgreSQL every table having column in SELECT or ORDER BY will need to have its PK added to the GROUP BY.

Supporting this needs some changes in the ORM, as the information which columns are primary keys isn't currently easily available. The benefit is faster query plans, as grouping by a large text field for example is very inefficient.
