+1 for this comment, I have worked on a monolithic project which made use of every single feature of Postgres mentioned above ( I guess the original developer really wanted to try them all).
We struggled everyday trying to debug things and figure out how they work in the database. We spent most of the time trying to remove logic from the database to code, to make the logic more understandable and easier to read.

So, Yes! Postgres is awesome, But please don't abuse these features and ask yourself first. Do I really need to this at the database level ?
