And what about replace all "scripts" by one command e.g pg_cmd with following interface:

pg_cmd create database <...>

And we'll break a million applications that rely on the command names.

Compatibility is possible solve with parsing arg[0]. If old name appears there command line will be parsed in old style... This functionally should keep there for some transition interval. Packager will be responsible if he create links for backward compatibility or not.

Well, I don't think rolling up the miscellaneous commands into a single binary with behaviour dependent on arg[0] is a bad idea. I don't think it's something to be looked at during feature freeze, though, especially given our backlog. I think we'd need a good long lead time before we removed the old names from our default install - at least one release cycle, so it would be two years or more before this became any sort of reality.
