"timestamp with time zone" is required by the SQL standard.  If you'd
like to use "datetime" as an alias for it, a quick CREATE DOMAIN will do
that for you.  As for the $$ bit, do you have a constructive suggestion?

You seem to be confusing a database with a point-and-drool GUI.  We have
those too (see pgAdmin for instance, or three or four others), but raw
psql is not designed to make Windows users happy.
