Well, kinda...  I don't want my users to be able to create
databases.  I only want them to create tables, modify
tables, etc.

_I_, as the hosting provider, will create the database for
them.  And I will add their user.  From then on, said user
should only be able to create/modify/drop tables, etc, WITHIN
their own database.

Is running multiple postmasters the _only_ way to achieve this?
If so, this is not so good.  :/


You see, we're leveraging the synergies of our existing open source
solution, without reliance on a single vendor.
Or in english: We use samba cause NT sucks ass.
