Yeah, I have to had two reason for this patch. First is my personal, because I
don't like these names since 1999. And second is that Solaris architects do not
like these names. Especially createdb and createuser. It could clash with some

I think both are important (maybe general is more important). Maybe we can put
also a survey on webpage.
On other side. The question is also if we really still need these utilities? If

VACUUM FREEZ or set some modern version of vacuum parameters. There is not
createtablespace command and so on...
