My understanding is that the under scripts/cleanup_datasets 
should be compatible with 'older' versions of postgresql.  I'm running 8.1 
under CentOS 5.  When I attempt to run the scripts, it fails to clean any data 
sets.  From the logs, I'm noticing messages like:

database_connection contains an unknown SQLAlchemy database dialect: postgresql

In my universe_wsgi.ini I've defined the database_connection as:

database_connection = postgresql://galaxy:********@localhost:5432/galaxydb

and am confident it's working as Galaxy works fine, other than this problem 
with deleting older datasets.

The script isn't an option, as it requires postgresql >=9.1.  I 
noticed yet another version of under cron which looks like 
it might be compatible with postgres, but am leary of trying it as I'm not sure 
what it means by "1: database directory to clean".  I'm not sure what directory 
to point this to, nor am I confident that just deleting data from the directory 
is the safest thing.

Any suggestions on how to proceed?
