This has been working well so far, thanks.

Um, looking at http://www.postgresql.org/idocs/index.php?privileges.html
it seems to be that I'm not actually able to do what I want. Am I
correct in believing that to let a user create tables and change tables
in a database, they actually have to had created it? The best I can do
is grant privileges on premade tables?

Thanks,
Chris
