"createuser" actually means "superuser" ... does that make it clearer?
PG 8.1 will have a privilege level that allows creation of users without
full superuserdom, but no existing release does.

Database connection privileges are controlled by pg_hba.conf; you could
adjust that file to allow this user access to only his own database.
Better take away his superuser rights first though, else he could undo
the change if he chose to.
