I'm just reviewing this discussion in passing, but many application
packages, such as SpamAssassin, which rely on databases, and can use
any of several db server technologies, supply a number of ready-to-run
CREATE scripts (not just examples) with names such as "dbsetup.mysql",
"dbasetup.postgresql", etc. which can be passed on stdin to a CLI
database client for the appropriate technology to pretty much automate
proper database setup.

I don't believe the version of Squirrelmail on my server requires this,
but it's SOP for many applications which do.
