Prompt customization is certainly something that could be done (and I  
use in my .psqlrc), but consider someone unaware of the psql prompt  
customization or people who are not using their own setup/account,  
etc.  This is a command that could be useful for anyone; as experts,  
we tend to miss some of the holes in the current interfaces.
