Yeah, I have the same problem with Glom's dependency on PostgreSQL.
Debian/Ubuntu users get an unused PostgreSQL instance even when Glom
isn't running, just because its Debian policy to run any services that
are installed, with no apparent way for the package to request anything
different. I think it's a bad policy.
