Yep. Having another versatile (interactive) client would not be a bad
thing. I'm still wondering how to conciliate any scripting language with
"bare SQL". The backslash-oriented syntax already used for psql & pgbench
seems the only available option. Otherwise ISTM that it is back to a
standard library oriented client access with import, connect, exec...
whatever set of function already provided by standard libraries (psycopg
for python, ...).
