You could configure postgresql to log every statement (look in the
$PGDATA/postgresql.conf file, it's in the logging section.)

And then just filter the logs for alter / drop / create statements...

None that I'm familiar with.  But if the databases are pretty simple, it
shouldn't be that hard.  Do they really need MySQL or are they just more
familiar with it?  It might behoove them and you to stick to
postgresql.  I find that it's easy to outgrow MySQL's limitations as you
learn more about databases and relational theory.
