It's always seemed a little odd to me that Postgres should install a
command called "createuser" or "createlang", because it's entirely
non-obvious on first examination that these commands (which often live
in /usr/bin) have any connections with PostgreSQL.  Shouldn't there be
at least be a "pg" in the name somewhere?

I don't think so; there is no demand from anybody but Zdenek to remove
those programs.  Has it ever even come up before?
