Cool project :) I once did some work on adding proper PostgreSQL support
to NDOutils but the problem is that the current code is really not too
well structured for a "real" RDBMS(prepared statements, transactions,...)
However the fork of NDOutils (IDOutils) does have
some basic PostgreSQL support - maybe that will get you started.

Yeah reusing code is always easier and you also don't have to maintain
it one your own as well :)
