Reviewing 7762619e95272974f90a38d8d85aafbe0e94add5 where roles were
added, I find:

pg_user   - use pg_roles instead, which actually includes all of the role
            attributes, unlike pg_user

pg_shadow - use pg_authid instead, which, again, actually includes all
            of the role attributes, unlike pg_shadow.

pg_group  - use pg_auth_members instead, which includes the info about
            the admin option and the grantor

I don't think we should remove things like CREATE USER, that's a
perfectly reasonable and maintained interface, unlike the above views,
which missed out on things like the 'createrole' role attribute.
