Thanks, I investigated qgis right after posting the question, and
understood that this is exactly what "add PostGIS layer" does.  However,
I cannot load these intersection queries that I created as views.  Only
the imported GSHHS multipolygons (e.g. gshhs_c_l1) actually load.  Just
after connecting to the database, the "type" and "geometry column"
columns for these intersection views in the "add PostGIS table(s)"
dialog have been showing "waiting" for the last 5 hours, so can't
actually add them.  Additionally, the postgres process is pegged at 25%
of my CPU since then.  If I drop the generated views, then nothing shows
"waiting" in the dialog, and can load the imported GSHHS world coastline
fine...  The intersections represent a very small subset of one of the
polygons (a single object), so I am suprised.
