I would be glad to see USERLIMIT gone, even though I wrote it. However,
I feel we are removing user's ability of non-super users to turn logging
on and off easily without really having thought through a mechanism to
give them that. I just don't see people creating secuirty definer
functions easily to do this and perhaps we should ship some capability
with our source.
I am thinking we should hold until 8.1. I do like the idea of moving
things to ALTER USER but I think there is more work for us to do.
