My though is very similar to Chris's but here it is:

CREATE SCHEMA ledgersmb;
ALTER USER lsmb_mycompany SET search_path TO '$user, ledgersmb, public';

use admin.pl to create the dataset using your existing DB and the new
user lsmb_mycompany. PostgreSQL should place the LedgerSMB tables in the
ledgersmb schema because it is the first schema in the users search

In fact I bet Chris's idea would work without altering the Pg-*.sql
files because new unqualified tables are created in the first schema
listed in the search path.
