Just a wakeup call here: if you let a user write C functions then
you *are* giving him Postgres superuser rights. He can do anything
he damn well pleases as user postgres, he's just got to write some
code to do it.
Once you've absorbed that, giving him the dbadmin password should
not look unreasonable.
