I proposed something along those lines  to fix this historical mistake but we didn't reach a consensus. createuser/dropuser could be a candidate to removal because it is easily replaced by psql -c "command here" like Simon said. If we go to this road, other binaries (that are just a wrapper around an SQL command) could be removed too (such as createdb, dropdb, clusterdb and reindexdb).  https://www.postgresql.org/message-id/bdd1adb1-c26d-ad1f-2f15-cc5205606...@timbira.com.br -- Euler Taveira Timbira - http://www.timbira.com.br/ PostgreSQL: Consultoria, Desenvolvimento, Suporte 24x7 e Treinamento <http://www.timbira.com.br>
