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. regards, tom lane -- Sent via pgsql-hackers mailing list (email@example.com) To make changes to your subscription: http://www.postgresql.org/mailpref/pgsql-hackers
