Committed, with some changes.  I used the new --if-exists option for
dropdb rather than doing it as you had it here; I assume this may have
been the motivation for that patch.  I also just made the exit code 1
no matter how many failures there were.  That seems more normal, and I
wasn't altogether certain that $((expr)) is completely portable.  I
also set the execute bit on the script.
