Well, the data access stuff is all manageable via views, which is the
standard way to do this.
You don't say which version of PostgreSQL you are using, but I'd be
tempted just to switch to a different user after connecting and use the
session_user system function to control what is visible in the view.
CREATE VIEW my_contacts AS SELECT * FROM contacts WHERE owner =
If that's not practical then you'll need to write some functions to
simulate your own session_user (say application_user()). This is easiest
to write in plperl/pltcl or some other interpreted language - check the
list archvies for plenty of discussion.
