I don't think so; there is no demand from anybody but Zdenek to remove
those programs. Has it ever even come up before?
Personally I found really strange to have "createuser" and "createdb"
shipped by Postgres when I started using it. I just didn't complain.
+1. Given the prevalence of the pg_foo convention, those names are
clunky. So is initdb. I'm less creative than Zdenek, so I'd suggest
simply renaming to pg_createuser and friends with the same command
line options as the originals. Have the binaries check $0 and emit a
warning about using the deprecated name to STDERR if called by a name
that doesn't have the pg_ prefix. Default to symlinking the old names
for backwards compatibility until 9.0.
