Personally I found really strange to have "createuser" and "createdb"
shipped by Postgres when I started using it.  I just didn't complain.

Seems a reasonable thing to do too.  Harder to type for developers, but
how much of a problem this is for real users?  And developers can script
the thing anyway so I don't think this is a real problem.

One idea is to move the offending binaries into libexec, and have pg_ctl
or other helpers (pg_cmd) call them; and where compatibility with the
old versions is requested, create symlinks in bindir.
