maybe is not very helpful, but it can't hurt... hey! it can save you
because you maybe used CREATEUSER with the intention of CREATEROLE,
and ended up with a user with restricted privileges that is actually a
SUPERUSER... that's bad and is a POLA violation.
is worse because we are the ones causing the confusion consider the syntax:
CREATE USER = CREATE ROLE
IN GROUP = IN ROLE
USER = ROLE
CREATEUSER != CREATEROLE
CREATEUSER = SUPERUSER
