I have written a Python replacement for psql, see 

Still ironing out some bugs before intregrating with the main script,
this gives us more control over the process, spurious errors can be directed at 

I also propose some simplifications to the script
        - making an effort to find files for sql and modules, to avoid needing 
to set up links
        - not prompting for the postgres password if we don't need it (as most 
will have no idea what it is)
        - offering to overwrite postgres config files with a sensible default 
        - removing the "yes or no" question, it just gets in the way, users can 
Ctrl-C at the gmdb-owner password prompt if they want to quit.

good idea, but probably simpler just to rename the old database to "old-gnumed"
and start afresh. This way data cannot accidentally be destroyed.
