The messages output by the "scripts" always seemed unnecessary to me, e.g

A Unix program (hi Magnus) shouldn't need to say anything if the requested
action succeeded.

I believe the history of this output is actually that these scripts simply
used to call psql and no one really questioned why the output should be
way.  There are also some inconsistencies, e.g., createlang doesn't output
anything, and createuser outputs CREATE ROLE.

I would just remove all this, but I suppose this will be controversial?

Can it me made to return an integer like most UNIX commands do? This helps
immensely when writing shell scripts.
