We use this "pure-Tcl client-side library" (pgsql.tcl, availiable on
Constantin's ftp site ftp://ftp.flex.ro/pub/pgaccess) to run Postgres apps
unmodified on Unix and Macs and really love it!
The only drawbacks are the missing support for large objects and for
crypted authentication. If you don't need these features (or feel you
could improve pgsql.tcl here) you might go this way.
