I agree that the incorrect claims about defaults for --superuser,
--createrole, and --createdb should be gotten rid of, since there are
no defaults for these options and createuser will force you to answer
Y or N for these options if you didn't specify on the command line.

Simple doc patch attached. I think the "Examples" section demonstrates
that createuser will prompt for this information without having to
belabor this point in the doc.
