Not the whole thing, but anything I thought would be useful. Not
enough (thought) obviously.

I did that, and one of the problems was solved by \connect. It never
occured to me that you can use the backslash commands in a file.

The other problem is a password though. I changed one line in your
example to:
    CREATE USER junk_user encrypted password 'secret';
And it fails:
    ERROR:  parser: parse error at or near "encrypted"
What's wrong here?

I checked, and it should work.

Thank you very much for your help!

The opposite of the above statement is also true.
