Sorry for the delay.

I spent time writing a short script shell to do this (see attachment). 
This script has to be run on the server. Be aware that you can very 
easily destroy your DB with it.

The query can be either in a file (specified with -i FILENAME) or from 
the CLI (between ' ').

Thank you very much.
