This is, effectively what I am going to do.

That is because I responded to Russell Coker's wishes for SELinux!
What I used to do was 'su - postgres -c "command ..."'.
Russell complained that this wouldn't work with SELinux's security and
that I should use start-stop-daemon instead. In order to do that, I
have to give it a script to run; otherwise I can't feed a sequence of
commands to one run of start-stop-daemon.
