+1.  The use-a-system-user solution is the one that's in place on the
ground for most current PG users on affected platforms.  We should explain
that one first and make clear that platform-specific packages attempt to
set it up that way for you.  The RemoveIPC technique should be documented
as a fallback to be used if you can't/won't use a system userid.
