Hi Hugh,

That's right. demo is an example of the type of elisp a programmer
would write to access PostgreSQL from Emacs. You can also play around
with it interactively:

  ELISP> (setq conn (pg:connect "template1" "postgres" "postgres"))
  <struct cl ...>
  ELISP> (setq res (pg:exec conn "SELECT * from scshdemo WHERE a=42"))
  <struct cl ...>
  ELISP> (pg:result res :status)


I intend to get together with someone else who has written some table
browsing stuff for Emacs to produce a browsing interface to PostgreSQL
for the end user, but I haven't had time yet.
