I think you're missing Craig's point.  On versions prior to 8.4, there
isn't a safe way to do this - you may crash your entire database
server.  So while it's probably possible to write a shell script, you
may not like the results very much.

Also, this is starting to sound a bit more like a usage question,
which you might want to try on pgsql-general.  This list is for bug
reports.
