It isn't. The script will search for one of pyPgSQL,  psycopg and pgdb.

The scripts use postgresql introspection to autogenerate triggers
for referential integrity, and backend database auditing: they
need to talk to a 'live' database while they are doing this.

I am currently working on an extension to autodetect postgres connection
parameters, hopefully the installation script will be very easy to use.
