I use web2py and pgadmin3 a lot with postgresql as backend.  Web2py is a
python web-framework.

I also once succeeded in setting up openoffice (before the time of
libreoffice) up with postgresql but as I hardly ever use
openoffice/libreoffice except for a few spreadsheets I stopped using the
'base' part.
