I wonder if I missed part of the discussions around this, so maybe my
understanding of the cases where this occurs is wrong, but isn't it the
case of pretty much all (or actually) all the packaged versions of
postgresql out there (debian, redhat etc) that they do the right thing, as
in that they create "postgres" as a system user?

I like the text in general, but if the above is true, then I think we
should put a note at the beginning of it with something along the line (not
using those words) of "if you have installed postgresql using packages, the
packager should have taken care of this already"? So as not to scare people
