What is the purpose of this database? A generalized, shared resource for tool 
makers and add-on packages to store information in PostgreSQL, or a working 
database that is usable (and to be used) out of the box for new users?  I 
really don't think we want the latter... I can see users connecting via psql 
and then playing around with different add/create type statements.  It is all 
too common a question from newbies... "does postgresql have a default 
database to get started with?" They'll see this database and begin creating 
schema and using this as thier main database, and I think we ought to avoid 
that. If people don't like pg_system, pg_addons seem like a much safer name 
to go with imho.
