In thinking about this, we really should move this functionality to
namespace/schema instead of multiple database.

I don't have any objections to this, but we'll have to look at this
for 1.3 or 1.4, as it will mean some work on the backup scripts and on
the admin.pl (which is already in a horrible state). The question is,
why would we want all datasets in the same database? (I'm not just
trying to be a dick, this is an honest question. :-)) I can think of
reasons for and against, but I'm really not the one with the most
postgres foo here.
