To my mind, these two and createuser/dropuser are the only really serious
namespacing problems among our standard binaries. The ones with names
ending in "db" don't seem likely to cause huge confusion. I suppose that
if we were naming it today, "psql" wouldn't get that name; but the chances
of renaming that one are certainly zero, namespace conflict or no.
But createuser/dropuser are a real problem, because they certainly could
be mistaken for system-level utilities.
