Hm. That would be cleaner and make the code more consistent. Now as
TestLib exports command_ok, command_like and command_fails, we would
get redefinition errors when compiling the code if those routines are
not named differently in PostgresNode. If you want to have the names
consistent, then I guess that the only way would be to remove those
routines from the export list of TestLib and call them directly as for
example TestLib::command_ok(). See for example the patch attached that
applies on top on your patch 2 that adds a set of routines in
PostgresNode with a slightly different name.

Well I don't get it either :)
I did a run on top of your two patches and saw no differences.
